To: All NYU Students—Safety During Your Spring Break Travels

March 9, 2009

  • TO: ALL NYU STUDENTS
  • FROM: Jules Martin, VP for Public Safety; Linda Mills, Sr. Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and University Life
  • RE: Safety During Your Spring Break Travels

Whether you are here on campus or traveling, your safety is always a matter of concern to us.

As you think about travel plans for the upcoming Spring Break, please be sure to check the U.S. State Department’s website ( www.state.gov ) for the latest travel warnings and advisories. In particular, we want you to be aware that on February 22, 2009, the State Department issued a travel advisory for U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico (http://travel.state.gov/travel/cispatw/pa/pa_3028.html) due to an increase in violence.

For those students who are traveling to Mexico, consult the State Department’s “Spring Break in Mexico” Fact Sheet for information on entry requirements, Mexican law, and travel advice for specific regions of the country.

If you are traveling outside the U.S., we urge you to consider registering with the State Department prior to your departure at this website: https://travelregistration.state.gov before the trip begins. Travel registration makes it possible for the State Department to contact you if necessary, whether because of a family emergency in the United States or because of a crisis in the foreign country.

We hope you have a happy, fun, and safe Spring Break.
