The Office of International Studies and Programs (OISP) is excited to welcome two new Study Abroad Advisors to the Study Abroad Unit.

DeMilio was introduced to the world of education abroad while completing her bachelor’s degree in psychology and French at Siena College in Loudonville, New York. During her junior year, DeMilio studied abroad in France at l’Institut Catholique de Paris where she advanced her French language skills and immersed herself in French culture. She is looking forward to helping ISU students make the most of their own study abroad experience and is excited to also be the RSO Advisor for the Study Abroad Mentor Program (StAMP).
