All Spring 2021 students whose petitions to study abroad were approved were required to attend the COVID-19 Health and Safety virtual pre-departure orientation on December 1, 2020. Students and families/support systems who could not attend are strongly encouraged to view the recording linked below, as well as the required 6-minute overview of essential health and safety resources, which students were instructed to watch and explore prior to the virtual pre-departure orientation.
Additional pre-departure sessions
In lieu of the traditional in-person pre-departure conference, the Study Abroad Office has created a series of virtual sessions which students may engage with at their own pace. Session topics include: Mental health and cultural adjustment, LGBTQIA+ resources, identity and culture abroad, saving money and budgeting, and practical international travel tips and logistics.Explore sessions
