Outbound Orientation



This is a training weekend for the Outbound Students and their parents before students leave for their year abroad.  It will help orient them with their country of choice, meet with Inbound Students from their country, and get advice on how to handle almost any situation they encounter.

This weekend is very important  for the Parents of the Outbound Students to help them prepare.  How much money will they need, can we visit them, what happens if they get homesick, etc.   Parents learn one of the most important lessons - let go and stop worrying.  It can be hard, so this preparation will help smooth over any potential problems.
