The seven George Washington students who are studying in Chile this semester are all safe and have been accounted for after a major earthquake struck off the coast of the South American country Tuesday.
According to Associate Provost for International Programs Donna Scarboro, six of the seven students are studying at GW’s Latin America Study Center in Santiago. The other student is participating in a program in public health run by the Vermont-based organization SIT. The student is in the northern part of the country. All of the students are undergraduates.
“We are grateful that all our students are safe, and we send our support and best wishes to Chile as it begins the recovery process,” Dr. Scarboro said.
