MIX Event Calendar

MIX Outreach and Events

There are various opportunities each week to learn more about Manoa International Exchange (MIX). Here are a few of the events we hold on a regular basis. Please check the Event Calendar for exact dates and locations. For more detailed information about any of these events, or if you’re interested in getting involved, email our Peer Advisors at mixpa@hawaii.edu.

Peer Advising

If you’re still in the exploratory stages of planning your study abroad experience with MIX, one of the best ways to gather more information is to come speak with our Peer Advisors, each of whom are recent returnees from MIX programs and are eager to share their experiences with prospective participants.

When you meet with a Peer Advisor, they can:

  • Assist you in gathering information about your options
  • Provide advice on what to consider when selecting programs
  • Help you navigate the website, application, and post-nomination processes
  • Give you tips on how to prepare to study abroad
  • Refer you to other resources
  • Schedule a meeting for you with a MIX advisor

Send them an email at mixpa@hawaii.edu to ask a specific question or make an appointment to meet with one of them. Drop-ins are also welcome.

Peer Advising sessions are available almost every week. For Spring 2017 semester, our Peer Advisors will be available on Mondays and Thursdays either on the QLC front lanai or at QLC 012. Feel free to email our team at mixpa@hawaii.edu to ask a specific question or to make an appointment to meet with one of them. Drop-ins are also welcome. Come grab a free cup of coffee (bring your own mug is appreciated!) and learn more about how to get started!

MIX International Social Hour

On alternating Fridays, MIX Peer Advisors host the MIX International Social Hour (formerly the ‘Coffee Hour’) at QLC 412 from 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm (see Event Calendar for exact dates). If you're just curious about studying abroad or you're already well into the planning and application stages, the International Social Hour is a great place to meet with international exchange students who are here at UHM from our partner universities abroad as well as our UHM returnee exchange students who have been abroad and are eager to share their experiences. All UHM students, faculty, and staff are welcome at the International Social Hour. MIX Peer Advisors are also on hand to answer any questions you might have. Coffee, tea, juice and light refreshments are typically provided. We hope to see you there!

Workshops

Beginning in the Spring 2017 semester, our Peer Advisors will host workshops on key study abroad topics. Workshops will be held at QLC 012 on most dates and are generally 30 to 45 minutes long. Please check our Event Calendar to see when these workshops will be held and the topics that will be covered.
