#umltravels Instagram Contest

Where in the World is UMass Lowell?

In summer 2013 we asked the UMass Lowell community to share the story of their summer travels through photos. Whether studying abroad, on an international internship, or exploring a new town or city in the area, entrants snapped a pic and shared on Instagram for a chance to win a gift card to the UMass Lowell Bookstore. Photos poured in taken everywhere from Greece to Ireland, the Bahamas and Costa Rica, to as far as the Republic of Georgia and as close as New Hampshire. See all entries on Instagram, #umltravels.
