Campus spotlight: The long trip home from Cusco
Gustavus Adolphus College had been monitoring developments across the globe for weeks, tracking travel advisories and program alerts while talking regularly with students. By the time the College called everyone back on March 12, Gusties from southern Europe, South Korea and Japan were already dealing with program cancellations and booking flights. A few were already home. But by March 20, word had leaked out that Peru would limit the number of flights in and out of the country. There was talk of a hard deadline, and it was unclear whether there would be enough flights for everyone who needed to leave.
