    • About me

      Hiya! My name is Audrey, and I am a Peer Mentor for the Office of Study Abroad & International Student Services. I have worked in the office for two years as a student worker, but after studying abroad, I am now a Peer Mentor. My major is Communication Studies with a minor in Business. While I am not entirely sure what my career goals are, I have been able to gain experience at a variety of internships and work experiences.

      Studying abroad was always something I dreamed of doing since childhood. However, once I came to Southwestern, I was worried that going abroad wouldn’t fit into my four-year academic plan. When I started working at the office and became familiar with the process of study abroad, I realized that there were programs tailored to each individual student. Eventually, I found the perfect program for me through API. In Spring 2020, I was fortunate enough to study abroad in Budapest, Hungary on the International Business and Humanities program. Even though this trip was cut short due to Covid-19, I was still able to meet some amazing people, jump out of my comfort zone, and adapt and immerse myself in a new and incredible culture.

      Studying abroad is an awesome opportunity that I hopefully can guide and educate other students on. If you believe you’re one of these students, don’t hesitate to reach out or meet with me during virtual advising to ask any questions (no question is ever too small or large). This process can be scary at times, but you will have so much help and support along the way!

      Stop by and say hello during my drop-in peer advising hours! Fridays, 1:00-3:30pm via Google Meet

    • About me

      Hello! My name is Haley Stuckey. I’m a senior here at SU majoring in Environmental Studies and minoring in Political Science. I studied abroad in the fall of my sophomore year (2018) with the SU Faculty-led London Program, and haven’t wanted to leave the study abroad world ever since! In addition to taking classes with Professor and Dr. Ross, we got to travel all over the U.K. with our class, as well as various parts of Europe over fall break. It was a lot of studying on trains and planes and buses, but completely worth it. One of my favorite parts about studying in London is that because there is so much history in the city, it allows opportunities for classes to take place outside of the classroom and in museums, parks, other neighborhoods, etc.  

      I’ve worked in the Office of Study Abroad & International Student Services for almost a year as a Peer Mentor! If you have any questions about programs or deadlines, please contact me by email, stuckeyh@southwestern.edu or feel free to chat with me during Drop-In Advising via Google Meet!
