Picturing Life Abroad – Student Photos from February 2017

The new year has come and gone and students spent the last month settling into their study abroad programs.

Here are some of our favorite photos tagged with @studyabroadusac during the month of February.

studying abroad is an opportunity for chance encounters of free-spirited, wonderful, adventurous souls

@miranda_ann | Thailand


This sweet little girl sits, dances and smiles at people walking by her moms food stand. I didn’t notice her when I first arrived to Chiang Mai, but now I see her everyday. Their food stand is just down the hill from where I live and tonight when I walked by I asked, “tii-nai” and made a baby rocking motion with my arms in a poor attempt of asking where her baby was in Thai. Only to find out what I already assumed which was that she had gone home for the night.
