1. CHILE | When you study abroad in Santiago it gives you a whole new perspective on life, literally. @el.shisam experienced this first-hand.

2. ECUADOR | Friends who watch sunsets on the beach together while studying abroad in Ecuador stay together. Isn’t that right, @beccavogt?



3. ECUADOR  | When you study abroad in the Galápagos Islands, how could you not fall in love with these sea lion pups? @peytonmooremaid, did you name your new friend?



4. FRANCE | @mere_simmons and her friends were feeling like royalty while studying abroad in Paris.

5. ITALY | Burano, Italy, is such a colorful island! @heysteeve, was this one of your favorite places you visited while studying abroad in Milan?

6. NEW ZEALAND | Those seagulls look like they are guarding that dock. @msaliba_photography, did you end up going on it?



7. NEW ZEALAND | “If you haven't noticed already I am going to post New Zealand photos forever.” @maddie2615, keep them coming! We love seeing photos from your time studying abroad in New Zealand.

8. NEW ZEALAND | When you study abroad in New Zealand, you could encounter a Boyd's forest dragon just like this one. @tessvandecreek found one that enjoys soaking in the spotlight!

9. SPAIN | How many friends can you fit into one selfie? @swass24 took up this challenge while visiting the beach in Coruña, Spain.

10. SPAIN | Breakfast tastes a little sweeter when you study abroad in Granada. @hgeller120, what was your favorite breakfast food there?
