University Encourages Students to Leave Japan
Written by Bwog Staff
The following update was posted on the University homepage today:
The University has been following developments in Japan closely. The 35 Columbians we are aware of who are still in the country—and the 33 affiliates in the Kyoto Consortium for Japanese Studies program—are safe and accounted for, but conditions continue to change and remain highly unpredictable. Given the ongoing uncertainty about how events will unfold as Japan responds to the situation in the affected areas, or whether the potential health risk may increase elsewhere, we believe it is prudent for students to make arrangements to leave Japan at this time.The University has reached out to students and is providing travel assistance to those who request it.
