Throughout October Jennifer Melton from Lake Land College was our featured advisor ready to answer any questions that came her way in our "Ask an Advisor" section. Although many students were worried about finding the perfect costume in the month of October, she still received questions from a number of students trying to study abroad! See what questions they had and what answers Jennifer was able to provide… it might give you the answers you’ve been searching for also! Jennifer has been at Lake Land College since 2009 and is currently the Director of International Studies where she provides personalized service and shows them what “small-town America” has to offer.

If you weren’t able to ask your question to Jennifer, ask our November advisor- Heather Sitt from DigiPen Institute of Technology.
