Back in 1987, when the George Fox Juniors Abroad program was first introduced, students were lucky if the postcard they sent home to their family made it back stateside before they did. Today, images from the university’s annual study abroad trips are available online in an instant. Here are some favorites found on Instagram from the 10 different three-week trips on which students and faculty embarked this May, taken at locations across the globe.
