Join the 2010 study abroad group in their unforgettable experience, as they share their thoughts and express themselves through the mediums of art, design, and photography.
I designed this book with love. It was a pleasure for me to sift through the thousands of photos collected from the trip, and recount so many great experiences. I hope you love and enjoy this book as much as I do.
