As students prepare to head off on their life-changing journey, there will be lots to do! From saying goodbye to friends and family to figuring out a phone plan, students will have no shortage of things to take care of before they board their plane. Maybe the most important, and most daunting, task that students must overcome before their time abroad is packing their bags. While we have some suggestions for your carry-on listed below, all students will be given a more in-depth guide on what to pack at the mandatory pre-departure orientation that they attend. At this meeting, students will also learn about health and safety, money matters, and cultural and travel tips. Although the preparations may be stressful, it will all pay off once you’ve arrived at your destination and begin your exciting adventure abroad.
