Limited Capacity filling up

Do you need a vaccine for a layover? Is 30 minutes enough time to change planes? How early do I have to get a Passport? Can I use work study while abroad? What kind of suitcase should I buy?

This session will introduce you to potential travel barriers you may face as a new (or new-ish) global traveler. We'll help you find the best place to go to get answers to your specific issue or concern. Representatives from student aid, the international travel clinic and the global center will share their work and their personal travel experience in this informal, conversation- and question-driven session. No question is too small.
