Global Lunch: Europe
Feedback form is now closed.
Students will have an opportunity to talk with individuals native to or knowledgeable about the region/country they will be traveling to.  This session has been specially designed so students can ask some of their more targeted and country-specific questions on health and safety, logistics, and daily living expectations/concerns.  The lunch will also provide a way to get to know others traveling to a similar area
