We're all in this together.
Amid the news and concern over COVID-19, I wanted to preemptively tell the university how pleased, relieved and satisfied I am that the school is taking a fact-based, sensible approach to current study abroad programs. I consider her continued placement to be very good for her in every way, from academics to health. Thank you for continuing an intelligent analysis as decisions are made. We have a serious situation at hand, but panic won't help, and our students' well-being includes not disrupting any programs unnecessarily.
