On November 21, 2016, the U.S. Department of State revised its Europe Travel Alert. Travel Alerts are issued when the U.S. government thinks there are "short-term events that you should know about when planning travel to a country." Please carefully review the Travel Alert that is pasted below and follow the security precautions outlined.

We would also like to remind the MSU community that the Office of International Health and Safety (OIHS) monitors events overseas and works closely with campus and external partners - including the Risk and Security Assessment Committee (RSAC), the Office of Study Abroad (OSA), the U.S. State Department Overseas Security Advisory Council, and our evacuation and security information provider – to support healthy and safe travel.

Do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns. Contact information and many other international health and safety resources may be found at

Wishing everyone safe travels and happy holidays,
