Megan Tan (Photojournalism, WKU Class of 2014) presents a short film on her semester-long experience studying abroad in Ecuador. In the fall of 2013, Megan participated in WKU's Student Exchange Program with the Universidad San Francisco de Quito.

In 2014-2015, WKU will commence with the "International Year Of" Program--with a focus on Ecuador. "Along the Equator"  provides a glimpse of the diverse people and environment that make up Ecuador.
