The Winners of the Study Away in 2015 Photo Contest

1st Place: General

The Blue City (Chefchaouen, Morocco) - The entire city was this amazing blue color. The city consisted of narrow alleyways, stairways, cats, and everything blue. Seeing the world through a blue lens, was an amazing way to live, even just for a day. (Courtney Parsons, Spanish Studies Abroad - Seville, Spain)

Kirka National Park (Croatia) - In this spectacular place, Kirka National Park, you are completely stunned by the beauty. Hundreds of waterfalls just like this make up the park. It was an absolutely amazing experience to see this in person. (Sara Garrey, University of Derby, England)

Budapest Shoes (Hungary) - During WWII, Jews were told to stand on the edge of the Danube River, step out of their shoes, and were shot in the water. This is a memorial in Budapest in honor of those who died this way. (Kayla Magan, Jagiellonian University - Krakow, Poland)


2nd Place: Global Citizenship

Hiking in Ireland (Gale Mountains, Ireland) - I joined the Outdoor Pursuits Club at the University of Limerick. Every Sunday we went on 8-12 mile hikes and this picture was from my first one. It was 12 miles and extremely hard but worth it! The views were beautiful. (Mackenzie Morse, University of Limerick, Ireland)
