Do I need a cell phone while I’m abroad?

The majority of our programs require that you have a cell phone with a local number while abroad.  Your study abroad advisor or program leader will give you more information on how to obtain one.  

How do I keep in touch with family and friends while I’m abroad?

Skype, Google Voice, Facebook, iMessage, Facetime…the possibilities are endless.  We don’t recommend calling home from a cell phone unless it is an emergency given the high cost of international calls.
