In a year when we all felt grounded (literally)—like it was the longest layover of our lives!—stories from abroad kept spirits in flight. ✈️

We're wrapping up 2020 with a look back at the videos, photos, articles, and blogs you loved most. Like our Pop of Color 🌈 edition of our Future-Focused Friday newsletter that popped up at the top of the charts, and the list of 5 study abroad videos to help you destress that resonated big time (#2020mood). And waaaay back at the beginning of the year, you joined us in celebrating our big win 🥇 as the only study abroad provider named on both GoAbroad and GoOverseas' best of lists. We're still humbled by the student reviews that got us there.🙏

Ready for the rest of best of the best? Us too.

Our anti-racism reading list and these 5 Incredible Student Videos About Diversity While Abroad had you learning and listening, as we stood together on the path toward progress.

You dug into the honesty of bloggers sharing personal stories of navigating the impact of COVID-19 on their study abroad programs

Throughout the year you voted for your favorite "This or That" travel preferences in IG stories, gave your best guesses to our Word of the Week translations (check out today's story to see if you remember some of the translations!), and double tapped our hearts full. Check out some of this year's most liked posts on Instagram:
