Peace Corps Updates for Fall Semester

Eric Luckey will be returning as campus Peace Corps recruiter again this year, starting August 18th. As Peace Corps has made many changes to their application process this summer, including applicant choice of where to serve, it is important that students connect with Eric to learn more.

Note, his email and phone remain the same (peacecorps@international.wisc.edu; 262-1121), but his mailing address is now 261 Bascom Hall. He no longer has a separate office in the Red Gym.

Eric will continue to have advising hours in the Red Gym, however, and will now be located in room 106 (also known as the Study Abroad Resource Center &/or the Wisconsin Experience room). Fall advising hours are scheduled as:

· Tuesdays 10-noon

· Wednesdays 2-4

· Fridays 9-11

Thanks for helping us keep UW-Madison as Peace Corps’ #1 school!

Best regards,

Maj
