Students in Japan are OK

I'm in the midst of a three-week spring break because the first-year students are on their required International Experience trip. One group, of about two dozen students, is in Japan. We got official word today that they are fine, in a Tokyo hotel.

My good friend Carolyn, who is one of the TAs (teaching assistants) on the trip, told me in an e-mail that she's a bit nervous about the rest of the trip. The group was to spend the next week visiting companies, then fly back to the US. All these plans are unclear. And I don't envy Carolyn, since these types of logistics are her responsibility. Sucks.

The important thing, though, is that everyone is safe.
