Travel Warnings Issued by U.S. State Department

The U.S. State Department has recently issued travel warnings for U.S. citizens who will be traveling in Mexico. The greatest increase in recent violent acts have occurred near the US border. However, all U.S. citizens traveling throughout Mexico should exercise caution in unfamiliar areas and to be aware of their surroundings at all times.

With Spring Break is just around the corner, we feel it is important to inform our students of potential risks that are involved in traveling through Mexico at this time. The following links will provide with you information released from the State Department, including information specifically relating to Spring Break travel.
