International Friday: Celebrate Study Abroad!

The U.S. has declared February 22 as National Study Abroad Day. To celebrate, we asked returned study abroad students to share advice, insights, and music recommendations from their host countries.

And don’t forget: February 22 is  the Beloit College application deadline for study abroad in 2021-22.

  • Pictures from a Memorable Day
  • Hooker Valley Track, Aoraki Mount Cook national park
  • To make the most of the abrupt end to our time in Ireland, a few friends and I took a day trip to the nearby port town of Kinsale. Of course, my last day was the sunniest and warmest of the whole trip! We saw old forts, stuck our toes in the freezing water, and explored the town. A bittersweet end to a wonderful few months!
  • First night in Denmark, visiting Nyhaven (the classic picture by the river and colorful houses)
  • I took this picture of the city scape of Cologne, Germany at sunset during a weekend trip I took to see The Book of Mormon.
  • El Mirador at Torres Del Paine National Park
  • Inside the Hermitage, the world’s second-largest art Museum in Saint Petersburg
