We are working on packing and shipping all belongings that were left behind in Prague. Due to international restrictions because of the pandemic, shipping will take approximately 8-10 weeks and is anticipated to arrive on campus sometime in late May. We are unable to ship items directly to individual homes, so all items will be shipped to an address on campus. Details on where, when, and how to retrieve your belongings will be sent to students’ email addresses and posted here as soon as they are available.
