Matt Priest
International Student & Scholar Advisor

Matt happily returned to the International Center in November 2021 after spending the preceding five years as a Consular Officer with the U.S. Department of State.  His experience working in Mexico City and Tbilisi, Georgia, conducting 10,000+ visa interviews, provided him with valuable insight for an International Student & Scholar Advisor. 

As a U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer, Matt taught math and science in Kenya for two years.  He received his Master's degree in Cross-Cultural and International Education and thoroughly enjoys meeting and interacting with people from around the world.  But more than anything, he loves his wife, and two young kids.

Advice from Matt: Be open-minded, curious, and get involved!
