  2. How did you spend your January? There was plenty to do at MIT: courses and workshops, the Mystery Hunt, slipping on ice and falling into 3 foot snowbanks.

    38 bold undergrads chose to spend the month studying abroad instead. Many of them participated in IAP-Madrid, MIT's largest IAP study abroad program. Other destinations included China, Japan, Italy, Ireland and Germany. 

    Some students shared their adventures via social media using the hashtag #iapglobal.
