Where We Are
We are located in the Study Abroad Office in 304 Fairchild Hall. You can also follow us on Facebook at Study Abroad Mentors.

- Represent the country and/or program of your study abroad experience
- Receive training from the Study Abroad Office to share your experiences through: class presentations, information tables, Q & A sessions, etc...

Meetings and Activities
The first meeting of the Fall 2013 term will be on September 16 at 6pm. All general meetings will be held in the Study Abroad Office, 304 Fairchild Hall. We will also try to have one dinner and one activity each month, in addition to our general meetings. Special meeting locations will be announced during our general meetings and on our listserv. During our general meetings, we will discuss and coordinate social events, service activities, and trips. Our past events have included bowling and skating nights, pumpkin carving, and raffles for international students. We also join forces with International Coordinating Council for many of their great events!
Membership is FREE!
