Eight University of Notre Dame students studying in Mexico at Universidad de las Américas in Puebla and the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey (the Tec) in Monterrey, will return to the U.S. by the end of this week.

Due to the swine flu epidemic, the Mexican government cancelled classes in all schools and universities until May 6, which was to be the last day of classes, so the cancellation effectively ended the semester.

Notre Dame’s Office of International Studies is working with Anthony Travel to arrange for the students to return to their homes by the end of this week.
