Photos are not limited to only the official country of your study abroad. Example: You studied for a semester in Spain, but took a weekend trip to Italy. That’s fine.

Global Classroom

Show us your learning abroad. This can be engineering related, or not.

Inside a classroom or out, show us what you experienced in your global classroom.
