International Peer Mentor Program

New Students:

Welcome to FIU!  As a new international student you probably have lots of questions, not just about your immigration status but about FIU, where to go for what, how to get involved on campus, how to meet new people and perhaps other issues you may have as you adjust to life in the U.S. and in Miami.  If you would like some help from another FIU student who can answer your general questions, you may contact an International Peer Mentor (listed below you will find contact information for all students currently serving as International Peer Mentors for both campuses). If you feel you will need additional assistance, you may also request that an International Peer Mentor be formally assigned to you by the ISSS office so you can meet with him or her to discuss your concerns.


International Peer Mentors can:

  • Answer your questions or direct you to the appropriate campus or community resources where your concerns may be addressed
  • Help you become more involved on campus by sharing their knowledge of events, activities, and student organizations
  • Serve as a liaison between new international students and the ISSS office, providing feedback to us on how we can assist students more effectively
