Students should be aware of their emergency contacts and make sure that they provide their program directors with the relevant contact info for themselves.
If students ever find themselves in a situation where they are unable to get in touch with program leaders, they can also turn to U.S. embassies.
"It's rare that a student is going to go to places where there isn't an American consulate or an American Embassy," says Samuel.
