According to the Study Away office, there are currently no Vassar students studying abroad in Japan. There is, however, a student scheduled to begin a term there next week.

The student plans to go to Kyoto, which as alumni have written on the AAVC message board has been less affected.

Meanwhile, the U.S. State Department has raised the level of its travel advisory. "We do allow students to go to countries with travel warnings, but both the student and their parent must sign a waiver," a rep for the Study Away office exclusively tells Mads.

As with the Egypt protests earlier this semester, the Study Away office has procedures for dealing with students traveling to countries affected by natural disasters or dangerous political climates.
