Tommies Share Photos From Experiences Abroad

The International Education Center at St. Thomas congratulates this year’s winners of its annual Study Abroad Photo Contest.

The winning photos will be on display in O’Shaughnessy-Frey Library in Coffee Bene, the Anderson Student Center, and on the university’s Study Abroad Facebook page.

The photos were judged by members of the International Education Center, University Relations, the Career Development Center and a study abroad returnee.

First-place winners received $100, second place received $50 and third place received $25. Tommies who have studied, worked or volunteered abroad in fall 2014, or who will study abroad in J-Term or spring 2015, are eligible for the annual Study Abroad Photo Contest in October 2015.

In addition to “Sense of Place,” the contest also included two other categories: “Intercultural Experience” and “Tommies Abroad”:

  • “Intercultural Experience” – this is about interactions between people; the meeting
    and mixing of cultures (students and the cultures they visit)
  • “Sense of Place” – this is about places and scenery; capturing the unique atmosphere
    of the country in which a student is a guest
  • “Tommies Abroad” – this is about UST students; group or individual student imagery that
    encapsulates the study abroad experience
