Students tell their study abroad stories through photos

by Kandace Kohr

Dickinson College students study abroad to find new lenses through which to view the world. In many cases, they also capture their journeys through camera lenses, and each year the Center for Global Study & Engagement invites them to share their photos and their perspective-changing experiences through the Study Abroad Photo Contest. In addition to allowing entrants to showcase their activities abroad, the contest also provides international students a venue for highlighting their perspectives on the U.S. 

This year, 23 students submitted 104 photos in six categories. Members of the campus community voted for their favorites, as all of the photos were displayed at the Carlisle Arts Learning Center. Congratulations to this year's winning students, whose images are featured below.

Share Your Story: Nepal, by Marina Morton '18 

“The Sun Koshi River, fed by Himalayan glaciers to the north, bends smoothly around the hills in Nepal. Farmers, teachers, mothers and other community leaders explained how essential the river was in supporting their livelihoods and ensuring their survival. It was also the community’s leading factor contributing to climate change vulnerability on the ridge. Communities have adapted their agricultural practices and lifestyles, self-organized to provide services to those most in need and exhibited a spirited willingness to help develop solutions.”
