Studying abroad gives students the opportunity to explore stunning environments and immerse themselves in unique cultures. The memories of these experiences can last a lifetime, especially when you have images to savor and share. For the second year, the Office of International and Off-Campus Education held a photo contest to highlight images captured by students taking advantage of off-campus educational opportunities. Entries were grouped into four different categories. Below you’ll find the winners of each category plus a gallery featuring a few of the finalists.
