top_10_photos_from_the_decade

The quality of cameras has significantly improved over the past ten years. Whether our students are taking photos with point and shoot cameras or with their smart phones, the quality of their study abroad experience still remains top notch.

As we enter a new decade, let's look back at all the moments that have made the 2000's unforgettable. To do that, we gathered the top ten study abroad photos from our very own Photo Contest between 2010-2019. The beginning of this decade might seem like a blur (quite literally when it comes to looking at old photos), but the moments that changed our students' lives forever will always be considered picture perfect to us. Check out some of our past Photo Contest winners below to see for yourself:
