  • Remain alert to surroundings;
  • Stay tuned to news reports;
  • Follow instructions issued by the police;
  • Contact the European Center (via the office phone, Director, Program Coordinator, or emergency phone) as soon as possible;

The Director will phone and/or text all students, and they will be instructed to contact the Director within two hours to confirm their whereabouts. All students must have a working cell phone during the program and must be reachable by European Center staff.
