Snapshots of a global Western experience

By Communications Staff, December 05, 2013

Have you ever wanted to run off to an exotic locale, learn a foreign language, experience a new culture, but couldn’t do so because of school? Good news: You no longer have to choose between the two. The Department of Modern Languages and Literatures held its first photo contest as part of the International Week at Western. Through the contest, the department showcased the many great exchange/study abroad opportunities offered to students. During the fall, students in the department were invited to submit one photograph of their experience abroad with one catchy phrase. Entries came from students who have been abroad in Argentina, Denmark, Cuba, Ukraine and Spain, as well as many other locales; more than 1,000 votes were cast. 

1st Place “Exploring the street- Learning happens through the locals you meet”
