Travel arrangements for your visit will be booked through Robert McCoy of The Travel Collaborative. He will contact you once you have been accepted into the program. Program activities will begin late on Thursday evening, and conclude with a closing reception on Saturday evening. Plan on departing Boston on Sunday.

If you require changes to your travel arrangements after your flights have been booked, you must contact your department representative to obtain approval.

"Through this program all of my questions were answered about graduate school and much more. I actually got to see first-hand what it takes to be a graduate student and was able to really understand what being a graduate student is all about."
