Welcome to GESI! The following material is organized to help you make the best of your experience in the program. Our pre-departure packets contain information specific to each GESI location. Each packet is broken into two sections—Section 1 focuses on what to expect from the GESI program (academics, program history, partners, etc.) and Section 2 focuses on site-specific information (packing, food, cultural expectations, etc.). Use these packets to learn more about each site and to prepare yourself practically, mentally, and emotionally before going abroad.
Below are the downloadable 2016 Pre-Departure Packets.
