Students considering applying to this course should be aware that there is a U.S. Department of State Travel Warning in place in Kenya. Linfield College will continue to consult with the State Department to monitor the situation and will also survey what other institutions with programs in Kenya are doing. Linfield reserves the right to cancel this course in the event of heightened risk which we consider insurmountable. We encourage applicants to discuss this matter with their parents.
