Fall 2013 Photo Contest: Top Ten

G’Day Travelers,

Every semester we ask our students to submit photos of themselves during their time abroad for our bi-annual photo contest. The Fall entries include students who have studied abroad either in the previous spring or summer semester. The first round of voting happens in the office and on social media with the photographer’s name hidden and their image doing all the talking. Once the photos are narrowed down to the Top Ten, we post them at our pre-departure social, and our pre-departure orientation for fellow study abroad participants to vote on them. The photos below are of students whose photos made it into our Top Ten.

This semester, our winning photos will be hosted in the Honors College. Stop by Stephens Hall to take a look!

Enjoy!

Amsterdam: Canals

Amsterdam

This photo was taken at one of the canals in Amsterdam. My friends from Germany and my best friend from the U.S. went with me. My best friend from home and I couldn’t stop singing Call Me Maybe all day. As we were driving back to Germany where we were staying with my friends we heard Call Me Maybe on the radio. It was pretty cool hearing that song on a Netherlands radio station!

Montenegro: Boats on the Water

Montenegro

 

This photo above was taken in the newly independent country of Montenegro in the old port town of Kotor– the whole town, even more inland, was a Mediterranean masterpiece.

I have to thank my professor of “Balkan Politics” at The American University of Rome for the rare field study opportunity that awaited in the restructured nations of Serbia and Montenegro. Aside from political discussions with local key players at the former Yugoslavian Parliament House and with the only non-regulated radio station, we took time to have a scenic drive winding down the mountains for a few hours until we reached Kotor and the town of Stari Grad at the very bottom tip of the Dalmatian Coast. Here, we were able to see some of Europe’s true natural beauty.
