If you studied abroad during the 2018 - 2019 academic year, you’re eligible to participate in the annual Study Abroad Photo Contest! We know you had great times abroad and that you probably took a few (thousand) pictures while you were overseas. Now we’re asking you to showcase these pictures. First, second, and third place winners from each category will receive small prizes and have their photos displayed during International Education Week (November 18th-22nd)in the Moody Library!
