This orientation is CRUCIAL to prepare you for going abroad and is required for all students who have been accepted to MU study abroad programs. (All students accepted to Non-MU study abroad programs are strongly encouraged to attend; however, it is not a mandatory event.) Read your Study Abroad Handbook carefully and prepare a list of questions for the Pre-Departure Orientation. It is recommended to share your handbook with your guests coming with you to orientation.
Your handbook is your "ticket" into the orientation; you are required to bring a printed or electronic copy with you.
