GoPro Video Project

Every semester NYU Global Programs awards three students a brand new GoPro camera. Recipients are encouraged to document their semester abroad and partner with Global Programs to create videos that will inspire the next generation of study abroad students. Students participating on the project can either create their own videos entirely or they can provide raw footage for Global Programs editors to shape into fun and engaging videos.
