Advice for parents and students abroad

For students

Don't dress like an American — no college T-shirts, baseball caps, etc.

Don't hang out in groups.

Don't talk loudly in public places.

Don't go to American-style clubs and restaurants.

Blend in.

For parents

Check the State Department Web site, www.state.gov.

Don't trust the program for all of your information — check independent sources.

Make sure the program has contingency plans (all Utah programs do).
