Dickinsonians have incredible experiences while abroad—academic, of course, but also cultural, social and personal experiences. And they share those experiences with their family, friends and fellow Dickinsonians in a number of ways, including by entering images in the Study Abroad Photo Contest. Held annually by the Center for Global Study & Engagement, the contest is a visual opportunity for returning study abroad students to reveal glimpses of their time off campus, and it also provides international students with a venue for highlighting their perspectives on the United States.
This year, 32 students submitted 164 photos in six categories. The images were displayed in the library, and members of the campus community voted for their favorites. Congratulations to the winning students, whose images are featured below.
“I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to Greece for the second summer in a row, to help with the research at the ancient Palace of Mycenae. I got to travel to many ancient ruins and learn about their histories and architecture. I was also very fortunate to attend the press conference where [Associate] Professor [of Archaeology Christofilis] Maggidis, the head of the dig, made public the discovery of a piece of the throne from the palace of Mycenae. This trip was valuable, [because I gained] both field experience and research experience in the field of my study, archaeology. I am hoping to continue to be a part of the dig and gain even more experience as a graduate student.”
