Mizzou: no changes to study abroad program amid travel alert

One day after the United States issued an Europe Travel Alert, the University of Missouri said it would not be altering its study abroad program – yet.

The State Department announced the alert on Monday after recent attacks in the United Kingdom, France, Russia and Sweden.

Mizzou said its 116 students studying in Europe are being notified about the alert.

“The university is in constant contact with our students as they travel abroad as their safety is our No. 1 priority,” said Liz McCune with the MU News Bureau.

The university also said it will continue to monitor the situation and make changes if needed.

If you are planning to travel throughout Europe, the State Department encourages travelers to check the website of the U.S. embassy or consulate in your destination city for any recent security messages.

Also, be prepared for additional security screenings and have an emergency plan in place.

The alert is set to end September 1, 2017.
