2015-16 Peer Advisers
Idia Irele '16
Idia is double majoring in Government and Spanish. Last year Idia studied abroad in Madrid with Tufts-Skidmore in Spain for the entire academic year. Idia considers studying abroad to be the best thing she’s done for herself as she became more fluent in Spanish, experienced a different university system, made great friends from all over the world, and gained a better idea of what she wants to pursue after finishing her studies. As a peer adviser Idia wants to support other Smithies so that they can also enjoy such a life changing experience. Idia truly believes that every Smithie should go abroad at some point during their time in college.
Maggie Johnson '16
Maggie is a Chemistry and French Studies double major and spent the 2014-15 Academic Year on the Smith in Paris program pursuing the Sciences à Paris option. Maggie’s goal as a peer advisor is to encourage and guide Smith students to study abroad on a program that meets their academic and personal needs and looks forward to meeting with students.
