While the Study Abroad Office will do everything possible to support students and provide a safety net abroad, no place in the world is without risk, and it is important for students to take responsibility while abroad and to be vigilant of their new surroundings.

In addition to our comprehensive pre-departure conference orientations and required online video modules for students, there are a few general recommendations and resources all students should consider prior to their term(s) abroad.
