Traveling while in college: The most interesting places students have studied

Where students have been taking their studies 

Between busy schedules and deadlines, you might think that traveling is too difficult as a student. However, there are a lot of benefits of getting out and experiencing places beyond your front door that can help enrich your overall student experience.

Traveling while studying provides you with exposure to the bigger world and lets you see things from a broader perspective. It opens your mind to new ideas, makes you appreciate nature, and helps to lower stress and anxiety, which can improve your mental and physical health. Let’s look at the most exciting places Ashford students have studied in this past year.

Cities students love to travel to 

Spending time in a different place allows you to not only immerse yourself in a different environment, but a different culture as well — and you don’t even have to leave the country to do so. The next time you’re looking for a new travel destination, consider the following U.S. cities:


Get away to Tennessee and surround yourself in the country music capital of the world. Start off your morning with southern-style brunch, then end your day hitting the local night life —in Nashville, you’ll enjoy the lively spirit at any time of day.


Plan your Florida vacay in beautiful Miami, where you can spend all day on the beach, and all night at some of the best venues in the world. 


From setting out on a picturesque hiking adventure, to exploring the quaint downtown, to touring one microbrewery after another, Denver has something for every type of traveler to enjoy.

New York City

New York, New York is a goldmine of attractions, entertainment, and culinary experiences. Go sightseeing throughout the different boroughs, catch an off-Broadway show, shop in famous SoHo —you’ll feel like you’re walking through a movie in the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps. 

Las Vegas 

World-famous nightclubs, spectacular shows, bottomless buffets —the feeling of luxury is affordable here. Visit Las Vegas and test your luck on the Strip. 

New Orleans

Even if you’re not in town for Mardi Gras, the energy is high in NOLA all year long. Have a po’ boy for lunch, listen to the sweet sound of live jazz trickling throughout the French Quarter, and don’t forget to try the famous beignets before you leave.
