March 2014 - Spring Break Safety Tips
For many college students, spring break can be a chance to unwind and relax, if only for a few days, after months of studying, classes, and the stress of academia. However, for parents it can be a time of fear and worry about the potential pitfalls their child may encounter on their trip.
A simple internet search can tell you not only where to stay and eat, and how to save money, but it can also help you stay safe. Here are several websites that offer tips to help students enjoy their spring break in safety while giving their parents a little peace of mind.
You can also register your international trip with the U.S. State Department (Bureau of consular Affairs) which makes it possible to contact you if there is a family emergency back home or a crisis in the country you are visiting. To enroll in the free Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), visit https://step.state.gov/.
Support is also available by contacting ESF's EAP Coordinator at (315) 470-6847, NYS' EAP Line at (800) 822-0244 or emailing NYSEAP@EAP.NY.GOV.
