Meet your SAPAs!

SAPA stands for Study Abroad Peer Adviser, and we are here to help make the process of studying abroad as easy and exciting as possible!  SAPAs are students who studied abroad in the past, loved the experience, and are here to help other students like you study abroad.  After you make an appointment, we will help you with any questions you have about courses, locations, or the study abroad process in general.  We meet with students at all stages in the process from thinking about studying abroad to preparing for departure. To request an appointment with a SAPA, send an email to abroad@mines.edu with your name, major, time(s) available, locations of interested, or any other questions you may have.  If you don’t know some of that information, that’s fine too!  We are happy to give you any information whether it is general study abroad information or information specific to your study abroad plan.

Hi! I’m Meg, I’m a Senior in Chemical and Biochemical Engineering. I spent my Junior year studying at the University of Oviedo, in Spain, and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I think studying abroad is a wonderful and important experience, and I can’t recommend it enough. I’d love to help anyone who’s considering going abroad find a school that will be perfect for them, and to make the experience as fun and unforgettable as possible. Meg
