|Travel Alert: spring break in Mexico|
Spring break is approaching and Mexico is historically a popular destination for many students. Please be advised that there has been a travel alert issued for United States citizens traveling to Mexico due to a recent increase in violent crime. While many U.S. citizens safely visit Mexico each year, it is imperative that students understand the risks of travel to Mexico, how best to avoid dangerous situations, and whom to contact if one becomes a crime victim. Common sense precautions such as visiting only legitimate business and tourist areas during daylight hours, and avoiding certain areas where drug dealing, etc. can occur, can help to ensure that travel to Mexico is safe and enjoyable.

There is also a publication on this web site titled “Spring Break in Mexico -Know Before You Go.” Any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact our office at 777-3341. -- Campus Safety and Security.
