Study Abroad Photo Contest Winners!
The Office of International Programs offered its annual study abroad photo contest this fall. Students who studied abroad during the 2010-2011 academic year submitted their beautiful photos from around the world including New Zealand, South Africa, Italy, and China. Twenty-one photos were displayed at the study abroad fair and students, faculty, and staff voted on their favorites. In addition to being posted below, you'll find these amazing pictures and other photo contest entries throughout our website!
Congratulations to our winners and many thanks to all of our students who submitted their pictures. We really enjoyed seeing where your travels took you and we're excited to share your adventures with the USM community!
