Application review is finished and the Dickinson delegation has been selected!  Many thanks to all who applied - with an outstanding 34 applications to chose from, it was a long and difficult process to chose the final group of selected participants. 

Look for an email confirmed your applicant status as "accepted," "waitlisted," or "deferred," in the next few days. 

To everyone - again, congratulations!  With so many stellar students interested in climate change negotiations on campus, the Fall semester leading up the negotiations is sure to be rich with academic experience and interest.

 
 

The first round of application review has been completed, and staff are now entering into the final round of review.  Be on the look out this month for updates from the Office of Global Education on the status of your application.

 
 

Did you forget something?  Permission from an instructor?  If you have not already done so, secure final permission from all professors whose courses you have enrolled in for the Fall 2009 semester in order to secure their permission to participate in the Copenhagen trip during the last week of classes and finals.

 
 

The application period for the course is now closed - and lots of great applications have been received!  Majors from across the college have expressed their interest in the program, and students' poignant and passionate explanation of why participation in this event is important transcends personal benefit in favor of community and global goals.  From cross-cultural understanding to policy negotiations, the final team is sure to be a group of intellectual, passionate, and dedicated people.  Way to go Dickinson!

 
 

International travel requires planning for the little details as well as the big ones.  In addition to getting your application in on time (June 30th is the deadline!) start thinking about researching some of the finer details of life in Denmark. For instance, how to use the electronics you may enjoy and rely on every day.

Electricity
220 volts AC (50 Hz) is the Danish standard. If you are travelling with electrical or electronic devices, be sure to bring a two-pin continental adapter with you.
