Visiting Your Student
Parents of students abroad for a semester or year-long program often wish to visit their daughter. Visiting can be a wonderful opportunity for both the student and her family, but keep in mind that students are truly studying abroad with required class hours and study time.
Allow the student some time to settle in and find a routine. Respect the time needed for academics and don't expect the student to miss or ask to be excused from class during your visit.
We recommend you plan to join your student for one of her academic breaks or a long weekend or at the end of her program. When you do arrive, she may be your expert tour guide.
Short-term programs are intense and no visits by family or friends should be planned.
