STATravel, the agency behind many a junior year abroad, has launched a new social networking site, statravel193.com. (193 = countries in the world.)

The first travel community just for students, it is being kicked off with the "World Traveler Sweepstakes." Students can enter the contest by picking the four countries they’d most like to visit (note: Amsterdam is in the Netherlands). Ten finalists will be selected, then voted on by the public.

The site currently features a spinnable globe, which you can click to hear people speak about the region. After the contest ends (10 days left and counting…) it will evolve into a full-on social networking site with more videos, profiles, photos, etc. Like Tripup (formerly TripMates) meets  NBC’s JYA.
