Bringing Your Experience Home

We hope students will bring their experiences back home to Carnegie Mellon by sharing international perspectives and lessons learned. 

Join our e-peer advisory and help other students go abroad. The e-peer advisory is a list of students who advise others on what it is like to study abroad. The list includes student names, email addresses, majors, and locations of study. Prospective students are given the e-peer advisory handout as an additional source of information on studying abroad. Our hope is that prospective study abroad participants will contact e-peer advisors via email with questions concerning the study abroad country, program, or about going abroad in a specific major. To be included on the e-peer advisory email with your name, email address, major, and location of abroad experience.

Returned study abroad participants are invaluable resources when we talk about study abroad and as we prepare others to go abroad.  We are always looking for students to participate in panel discussions, residence hall programs and other study abroad events.  Not only do prospective study abroad participants learn from other’s experiences abroad, but talking about their experiences abroad allows for returned students to bring their abroad experience home and continue to share. Please email if you would be willing to participate in an educational program opportunity.

Many academic departments offer opportunities to students to share their study abroad experiences as part of departmental programming or as a unique perspective on the academic subject.  Students should talk with their academic advisors or departmental contacts about specific projects and opportunities.
