Students will resume travel to Japan

All University programs scheduled
to travel to Japan during the spring
and summer sessions have been given
the green light since the lift of the
national travel advisory to the country
last week, University spokesman Rick
Fitzgerald confirmed yesterday.
The March 11 earthquake, sub-
sequent tsunami and partial nucle-
ar meltdown in Japan left many
concerned about the stability of the
country's landscape. When the U.S.
State Department issued a travel advi-
sory to Japan after the natural disas-
ters, all travel plans to the country by
University programs were immedi-
ately halted.
The 10 undergraduate students in
Japan this semester returned to the
United States after the University

suspended its program. Six graduate
students and several faculty members
were also in Japan at the time, and
all University affiliates were out of
harm's way.
The University's policy on study
abroad programs dictates that no
University-sponsored trips may go
to countries or areas issued a travel
warning by the State Department.
The State Department's decision to
lift the warning for Japan on April
14 has set the University's scheduled
trips back in motion.
Amy Conger, the director of Inter-
national Programs in the College of
Engineering, said that while the travel
advisory was still in place, the engi-
neering program set to go to Nagoya,
Japan in mid-June continued to pre-

pare students for the potential trip.
However, after the March disasters
occurred, the program extended its
deposit deadline until the end of April
as a precaution. That way, students
could form a "plan B" in case the advi-
sory was not lifted, Conger said.
Though University students are
now allowed to travel to Japan, the
State Department maintains a trav-
el advisory against going within a
50-mile radius of the Fukushima
Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, which
experienced a partial nuclear melt-
down in March as a result of the
earthquake.
Conger said Nagoya is not located
near the Fukushima plant, and stu-
dents should not be at risk of radiation
exposure during their studies this

summer. However, she said the pro-
gram is "strongly advising students to
limit their side travel."
In a press release issued yesterday,
members of the University commu-
nity were urged to record their travel
plans and contact information while
abroad in the University's online
Travel Registry. University-affiliated
travelers were also encouraged to pur-
chase travel health insurance through
the University.
Fitzgerald said the travel registry
will help to ensure all students remain
outside of the State Department's
travel advisory near the Fukushima
Power Plant by keeping each location
the students will visit on record.

"We have /had more reported

Sgt. Mike Lance said.
Brown said the Oxford area
is an attractive target for crimi-
nals because its residents are "in
a much more vulnerable state"
late at night. This vulnerability
stems from students in the area
walking by themselves, being
unaware of their immediate sur-
roundings or being intoxicated,
Brown said.
Because of the high number of
crimes in the area, students have
started reaching out to the city
this semester to try to encourage
the installation of brighter light-
