The Study Abroad Peer Advisor program is intended to increase awareness and enthusiasm about study abroad by creating opportunities for the exchange of information between past study abroad students and prospective study abroad students. SAPA's will serve as resources via email, phone, one on one, and at events, as mentors for those interested in studying abroad. SAPA's may share their rich experiences with the MSU community in order to inspire future study abroad (SA) students.
The SAPA program allows past SA students to share their experiences while inspiring future study abroad students. As representatives of the Global Education Center and of MSU, peer advisors gain experience by conducting classroom presentations and becoming mentors for prospective and outgoing SA students. This leadership opportunity not only allows SA alumni to network with other SA alumni, but it also serves as a great resume builder by developing skills useful for a range of careers.
