Follow @WUSTLOverseas on Instagram! Throughout the semester, students currently abroad will be taking over our account to share their experiences. We also enjoy highlighting on campus events, our Buddy Program, and Ambassadors. We are always excited to see what you are up to while on program, so tag us and use #AroundtheWUrld and #WashUAbroad



Our newsletter – Around the WUrld – is a quarterly electronic publication that aims to provide information for prospective, current, and past study abroad students, as well as parents and community members. Topics range from program highlights, deadlines, scholarship opportunities, events, advice, and even a trivia question.
