Study Abroad Student Representatives

Study Abroad Student Representatives are Penn State Engineering students who are study abroad returnees who valued and enjoyed their experiences so much that they dedicate their time to advise their peers on education abroad opportunities.

Study Abroad Student Reps can explain program options, give an overview of the study abroad process, as well as provide information about their experience abroad. These students help promote Global Engineering Engagement and encourage students to pursue international opportunities.

Meet with a Study Abroad Student Rep

Representatives are eager to talk to you about the experiences they've had abroad. They can answer your questions about how an international experience can be incorporated into your engineering major program, the application process, and much more.

You can visit a Study Abroad Rep during their office hours in Kunkle Lounge (corner of Hammond and Sacket Buildings, top floor).

Study Abroad Reps can also speak to your class or club. Simply contact the Global Engineering Engagement Office at

The mission of Global Engineering Engagement is to create an environment that embraces the values of international education, where access to global exposure and opportunities to develop cross-cultural competence is pervasive. We believe that it is within our reach to ensure that all engineering students can become internationally engaged.
