Program Orientation and Departure

Students will depart as a cohort from Atlanta. Traveling with the students will be a CofC staff member and their study abroad mentor. Intercontinental flights are normally evening departures and there will be a program reception for students and families the day of departure. The cohort will then depart from the planned hotel in Atlanta to Hartsfield International Airport.

The reception will include a special pre-departure orientation and departure presentation which will ready both participants and parents for the spring study abroad experience at Franklin University Switzerland.
