Dear Families and Friends:

We are honored that you have entrusted your student to travel with us during coming semester! I feel certain there are many questions and concerns that may be coming up as your student begins to prepare for the program. I want to take this opportunity to anticipate some questions you may have and to respond as best I can. Please refer to the information below (listed by region) for more details about student accommodations during the program, safety, health, and contact information, etc.

Feel free to contact me at any time if there is anything I can do to be of assistance.
