Student Information for May 2020 Canceled Trips

2020 Juniors Abroad Students

I once again want to express my regret for having to cancel the trips and I appreciate your understanding and patience.   Below is the current plan for moving forward. 

WARNING:  As I am sure you are aware this is all unprecedented so please understand that our plans are fluid and that we could cancel any of these trips due to low enrollment or other reason.

  1. The meeting scheduled for 5:30 pm on Monday, March 16 has been moved to an online ZOOM meeting at 2 PM on Monday, March 16. The link below will allow you to join the  ZOOM meeting.  You will be able to ask questions via a chat option.  We will record the ZOOM meeting and it will be available on the Juniors Abroad website for those that cannot attend this meeting. Sorry, but the recording did not work as planned.  Take a look at this information and let me know if you have any questions.
  1. May 2021 Trips. The following trips will be offered for May 2020 students in May 2021
  • Egypt
  • Greece
  • Italy
  • Poland to Croatia
  • Vietnam, Hong Kong, South Korea
  • West Africa
  • Australia - June
  1. Priority order for registration. Registration will be in three phrases as outlined below.
  1. Top priority for each trip will be for those who were in that trip this May. For example, students who were in the Vietnam trip get first priority for the Vietnam trip in May 2021.  Enrollment for this this will be March 17 – March 20.  If you do not make this deadline you can still add this trip at a later date if there is room.  I will send you a link to a Google Form to fill out on March 17 after the ZOOM meeting
  2. After the deadline in #1, registration will open for ALL May 2020 students to register for the above trips. Enrollment for this will be March 30 – April 3. I will send you a link to a Google Form to fill our on March 30. 

  3. Beginning April 4, after the 2020 students register, registration will open for both May 2020 students and May 2021 students for ALL trips being offered. Both groups of students can then register for any trip or be put on the waitlist for any trip.
