Dartmouth Evacuates Students From Mexico Over Swine Flu Worries

Iowa State and North Carolina State also cancel summer study-abroad programs.


As a precautionary measure, Dartmouth plans to pull 11 undergraduates, a faculty member, and a teaching assistant from the school's Language Study Abroad program in Cholula, Mexico, because of worries about swine flu, the Dartmouth reports. There have been no reports of sickness in Cholula, and none of the students have exhibited symptoms of the flu.

Meanwhile, more schools like Iowa State and North Carolina State are canceling summer study-abroad programs in Mexico.
