For some students, it’s a part of college as important as living in a dorm or studying a certain subject: taking a term or even a year to study abroad. Each year, some 700 Wildcats travel, taking advantage of the more than 500 programs UNH partners with in 39 different countries, on every continent except Antarctica. For some of these students, it’s a chance to scratch an itch and experience a different campus or culture. For others, it’s a step toward a future in the Foreign Service, the Peace Corps or a permanent move abroad.
Since 2005, UNH’s Global Education Center has invited students to submit a favorite photo or two from their study-abroad experience to an online contest, shared on its Facebook page. We’ve included some of our favorites from 2017 here — images that not only bear out the old axiom about their worth relative to 1,000 words but also capture how the world looks through the eyes, iPhones and camera lenses of current Wildcats.
