Do you need a vaccine for a layover? Is 30 minutes enough time to change planes? How early do I have to get a Passport? What expenses should I include in my budget? What kind of suitcase should I buy?  This session will introduce you to potential travel barriers you may face as a new (or new-ish) global traveler. We'll help you find the best place to go to get answers to your specific issue or concern. Representatives from the international travel clinic and the global center will be joined by students who have had global experience to share their work and their personal travel stories in this informal, conversation- and question-driven session. Come ask questions about money, health, safety, logistics, and more. No question is too small.
