The U.S. State Department has increased their travel advisory to Level 4 for all international travel. Level 4 is the highest possible warning level. This means the U.S. government is advising all U.S. citizens to “arrange for immediate return to the United States.” All students still abroad should do so immediately, otherwise they may be forced to remain abroad for an indefinite period.
