Zika Virus Precautions
In light of the ongoing Zika virus transmission in various countries throughout the Americas, we urge all study abroad participants to follow the guidance issued by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention and practice enhanced precautions to prevent mosquito bites.

While there is no immediate threat to the health and safety of our students, the Study Abroad Office is closely monitoring the situation and will post any relevant updates. Please visit the CDC's website for more information.
