Offering students the opportunity to learn more about study abroad in an informal setting, the Global Visions Triple event will host the Center for Global Education’s (CGE) annual photo contest. Additionally, the release of volume 10 of The Aleph, a journal of global perspectives, will be held in conjunction with the show opening. The event will take place on Tuesday, April 3, at 4:30 p.m. in the Vandervort Room of the Scandling Campus Center.
Held at the end of every academic year, the photo contest provides students who have studied abroad with an opportunity to not only share their work with the HWS community, but also showcase some of the locations where HWS students study and travel.
“Two large screens will be set up to show slideshows of all of the submissions the Center for Global Education has received,” explains Associate Dean for Global Education Thomas D’Agostino, noting that the submitted images will be judged in the categories of photojournalism, landscape/architecture, artistic, “Best in Show” and “People’s Choice.” “The award winners will then be shown and commented on by the judges, who will include CGE staff and HWS Photographer Kevin Colton. The contest’s overall winner and runners-up will receive gift certificates from Amazon.com.”
In addition to the photo competition, the latest issue of the Aleph will be available for students, staff and faculty to pick up. Providing reflections of students’ travels and study abroad experiences, the journal allows the HWS community to gain insight into the study abroad experience and provides interested students with an idea of what they can expect when they go abroad.
“This newest edition of the Aleph is our big anniversary issue and is a retrospective, including pieces that we’ve featured over the past decade as well as new work,” notes D’Agostino.
Finally, the event will also feature new images in the Global Visions Gallery outside the Vandervort Room. Students, staff and faculty can peruse the photos that were taken by students while abroad – providing another avenue of insight into the study abroad experience and the destinations that HWS students have chosen.
Additional photographs will be on display at the CGE, where copies of Aleph will be available and visitors may browse through the Global Visions Gallery show following the event.
