Announcement from the U.S. Department of State (for students going abroad
this summer)

FACT SHEET

Travel Safety Information for Students

As the time approaches for spring or summer breaks, many college students
are getting ready for that much anticipated trip abroad. Most will have a
safe and enjoyable adventure, but for some, the trip will become a
nightmare. A number of ruined vacations are caused by one or more of the
following: drugs, alcohol and disorderly behavior.

Each year, more than 2,500 American citizens are arrested abroad--about half
on narcotics charges, including possession of very small amounts of illegal
substances. A drug that may be legal in one country may not be legal in a
neighboring nation. Some young people are victimized because they may be
unaware of the laws, customs, or standards of the country they are
visiting.

Besides drugs, alcohol can also get U.S. citizens in trouble abroad.
Students have been arrested for being intoxicated in public areas, for
underage drinking, and for drunk driving. Some young Americans go abroad
assuming that local authorities will overlook such conduct. Many believe
that they are immune from prosecution in foreign countries because they are
American citizens. The truth is that Americans are expected to obey all of
the laws of the countries they visit, and those who break these laws
sometimes face severe penalties, including prison sentences.

Disorderly or reckless behavior is also to be avoided. In many countries,
conduct that would not result in an arrest here in the U.S. constitutes a
violation of local law. It is crucial that young Americans be aware of this
risk as they are enjoying their time abroad.

Being arrested is not the only thing that can happen on a foreign vacation.
Young Americans have suffered injury or even death from automobile
accidents, drowning, and falls, in addition to other mishaps. While these
accidents are sometimes chance occurrences, many are caused by alcohol or
drug abuse. Sadly, other Americans have been raped or robbed because they
have found themselves in unfamiliar locales or are incapable of exercising
prudent judgment while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Remember: Reckless behavior while in another country can do more than ruin
your vacation; it can land you in a foreign jail or worse! To have a safe
trip, avoid risky behavior and become familiar with the basic laws and
customs of the country you plan to visit before you travel. To obtain more
information about traveling abroad, check the Department of State's web site
at http://travel.state.gov.

Student Quotes

-From a student on Semester at Sea
"In Japan, the people are overly polite. They are the nicest and most
hospitable people I've ever been around."

-From a student studying in Spain

improvement though. It is fun to try and communicate with her."
