Spokesman Roland Adams says 11 undergraduates, a faculty member and a teaching assistant are currently in Mexico on the program.

The college has arranged for the participants to fly out of the state of Puebla, where Cholula is located, into Houston on Wednesday. From there, further arrangements will be made for the students to travel to their respective homes, The Dartmouth reports.

None of the participants have reported or exhibited symptoms, and the college has not received any official reports of swine flu in Cholula.
