Allen College in the Dominican Republic: Final Information

Now what? You’ve gone through all that information to help prepare you for the Dominican Republic, and so what’s next?

KEEP EXPLORING! The more you read-up on the places you will be visiting, the more you will get out of your time abroad! Remember to bounce back to Module 1 and Module 2 of thisĀ online pre-departure information any time.

Now, for our last piece of advice…..stay patient and be flexible while traveling, this will make for a much more enjoyable experience. Recognize you are traveling to a different country so things will be different then in the states. You will come home wishing we did some things the way they do in the Dominican RepublicĀ and then loving how we do other things here in the states. Be prepared for a delayed flight, a lot of traffic, food you may not like or even experiencing a little bit of culture shock.

Have a wonderful trip abroad and soak it all in, it’s one of the most amazing experiences a college student can take. Oh and watch out, you may just catch the travel bug and already start planning your next trip before you even get home!
