Where have you been lately? That’s the question we ask Rochester undergraduates each spring in our Study Abroad Photo Contest. The answer for 2010 included entries from 40 students who studied in 33 countries in more than three dozen academic programs recognized by the Center for Study Abroad and Interdepartmental Programs.

Students sent us 142 photos, covering the categories of people, culture, and the physical world.
