Sharing the World's Images
Sure, you can explain what it is like to peer over the edge of a mountain at sunset in Greece. Or muse about the hopeful spirit of a child in Cameroon. You can recall a lighthouse perched on a craggy rock in New Zealand. Or describe the lone man you spied sitting in the Indian sun against a crumbling, honey-colored wall. Or you can talk about how mysterious Morgan Field appears in the early-morning fog.
But wouldn’t a picture explain it better?
Realizing this, the Office of Global Education hosts an annual photo contest that helps students share their study-abroad and international-student experiences with the entire Dickinson community.
Each year, the contest brings a world of images to light. Student photos are placed on display in the HUB, and members of the campus community vote for their favorite shots. Winners are announced during a reception later in the day.
This year's grand prize was awarded to Alison Collins '10. Photos by Shannon Kobran '10, Marci Wills '10, Marguerite Easterbrook '10 and Joshua Foong '11 each won first place in selected photo categories.
