Keller Center International Internship Orientation Session - April 26

Date: Friday, April 26, 2013
Time: 12:30 p.m.
Location: Friend Center 006 (downstairs)
Other: Pizza will be served

The Keller Center will hold a pre-departure orientation session on April 26 for all students embarking on Keller Center international internships this summer (CLOSED SESSION). The session will last about 1 hour and pizza and beverages will be served.  Attendance is mandatory unless you are currently out of the country on semester abroad.

At this session, Satomi Chudasama from Career Services will talk about what students can expect with working in an international setting, and Helen Ackley from University Health Services will provide any health and wellness information as it pertains to the student's country of destination. 

Bring any questions/concerns about interning abroad with you to the orientation session. This session will also give you the chance to meet all the other interns who will be going abroad this summer, find out where they are going, and perhaps make travel plans together if you are still in the process of booking flights. Note that a few additional international placements are currently being worked out, so once I have the complete list of interns, I will share it with you.

Please set aside some time to prepare for your trip and complete all the necessary steps in order to travel abroad. Some students have most likely already used the Travel Database for other Princeton-sponsored trips or activities, but those of you who have not should take the time to familiarize yourselves with it. Please see the important information below on preparing for travel this summer.

• Register your travel on the travel database 
• Contact UHS/Travel Medicine and make an appointment well in advance of departure if traveling to a country which requires immunizations
• Review thoroughly the information on the travel website for undergraduate students

The University does not sponsor undergraduate travel to countries on the US State Department travel warning list. Students who have a compelling academic reason for traveling to a country on the State Department travel warning list may request consideration through the travel exemption process.
