Finalizing your travel details
About two months before your trip, you and your trip’s field assistant will meet with the student services program coordinator to confirm that your program is on track and to clarify any remaining details. For spring break trips, this meeting should happen during the first several weeks of the spring semester.
At this meeting, you will:
- Finalize your itinerary
- Set a date for an in-class, pre-departure meeting with the student services program coordinator
- Review roles and expectations of trip leaders and field assistants
- Request host gifts and/or other purchasing needs specific to your trip (e.g., face masks, reporter’s notebooks, etc.)
