As noted in the behavior compact, students should endeavor to form deep connections with their host culture by exploring local sites and peoples on the weekend. However, occasional trips to nearby cities in the region can also help one develop a global perspective. When making these excursions, you must notify the local program leadership and host families of destinations and all travel details well before departure. Remember that missing class for personal excursions  strictly prohibied. Please do not even ask.

With even moderately careful planning, students can travel and book accommodations at reasonable rates. The following sites are among those used most often by students engaged in international education.
