Elon's Study Abroad Program Suffers From Coronavirus Shutdown Around the World

One of the things Elon University is known for is their study abroad program. The Alamance County university ranks in the top 5 in every national survey for such programs. But those travels overseas have been seriously affected by the responses a lot of countries have imposed due to the coronavirus. For instance, a lot of folks don’t realize at least 52 countries have closed their borders to outsiders, and 95 have at least partially shutdown to outsiders. At Elon, there are still 19 students in the program, including Germany, Rwanda, South Korea, England, France, Germany and Spain. Now though, all winter study abroad plans have been cancelled and some of the spring programs as well.
