See the winners of Augusta University’s Study Abroad photo contest

The annual Augusta University Study Abroad Photo Contest is an opportunity for students to share photos taken while traveling and learning abroad in the past year. Judges reviewed more than 170 photos showcasing the incredible, often beautiful, interesting and life-changing experiences of study abroad to pick winners in three categories: culture, landscape and Jaguars abroad. A “Facebook favorite” is also selected for earning the most number of likes.
