FAQ > What is communication like from Ethiopia?

  • Don’t expect to use Facebook every day!  However both cellular phone service and internet access are increasingly available all across Ethiopia.
  • REU Site students can expect regular (at least weekly, and often daily) access to email.
  • Students will also be assigned cell phones in pairs, to be used for in-country communication and, in the event of an emergency, calls overseas.
  • Emergency contact numbers (including the REU Site faculty, student assigned cell phones, hotel land lines, and university partners in Addis Ababa) will be provided to students and families prior to departure from the U.S.
