The first photo competition for Study Away has been concluded. The competition, the brainchild of Dr. Miguel Rivera-Taupier, EML Foreign Language Coordinator, included contributions from students engaged in study away trips or who were part of exchange programs in the past year.
There were three categories: People and Culture, Nature and Architecture, and Griffons' Wings (for pictures that displayed MWSU colors or the school spirit abroad). Ten students participated in the contest and we expect to have even more next year.
The picture below received first prize in the Nature and Architecture category.
Elliot Swope says about the photo, taken inside the Vatican’s museum in Rome, that he "was attracted to this spot by the gilded golden handrails against the spiraling blue backdrop", which he finds synthetize the Vatican.
