Butterflies and Balloons
Butterflies and balloons, monkeys and Machu Picchu—these are among the startling images captured by Macalester students who studied abroad last spring.

Visitors to a November reception voted on winners in three categories—people, culture, and environment— and those winners are on display in Markim Hall until the next contest comes around.

Allison Jacobel in New Zealand
Returning to New Zealand had been a dream of mine since I first fell in love with the country when I visited with my family in 1997. So when the opportunity presented itself for me to study abroad, the country was an obvious first choice. As a geology major with a minor in environmental studies, I knew New Zealand’s diverse landscapes would provide the perfect setting in which to continue my studies and indulge in my love of backpacking (or tramping as it’s called in NZ).
I spent four months studying with the Arcadia Center for East African Studies in Arusha, Tanzania
