From Hofstra to Hostel: Social Media Accounts to Follow Before You Go Abroad!

When it comes to study abroad, rather than looking up what Google tells you are the top destinations in your country of choice, look at social media! You already have the accounts so it’s easy to see as they update and note places that look interesting and others have reviewed. In the visual age today, realistically we know you’re going abroad for the eye-catching experience!

This account is submission based so it has a variety of pictures sent in from any of their contributors. The advantage of this is that the destination pictures they receive are from normal everyday people meaning they should be easily accessible today. A tip because I was initially confused is the locations are labeled above and the submitters are credited in case you choose to look at the original sources’ Instagram.
