Hanging out with sea lion pups in the Galapágos Islands, taking in the view of Lake Como, jumping into the waters off the Italian coastline - our Fall 2017 study abroad students had some unforgettable moments, and they have the photos to prove it!

With pictures from students studying abroad in locations across the globe, the Fall 2017 Photo Contest competition was intense. After a week of voting, more than 9,000 votes were cast on Facebook, and three winners came out on top.
