Texas Tech University’s Office of International Affairs will host its annual juried exhibition showcasing photographs taken by students studying abroad.
The featured images will reflect a variety of subjects from around the world. The exhibit opened March 3 and runs through through April 29 in the Our World and East Galleries at the International Cultural Center located at 601 Indiana Ave. The exhibit is free and open to the public Monday - Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Studying abroad is growing in popularity throughout the U.S., and the number of Texas Tech students who want to incorporate a study-abroad program into their college experience reflects this trend. Learn more about studying abroad on their Web site, facebook and twitter.
Jenna Anderson, a student whose photograph will appear at the exhibit, said the image conveys her own study abroad experience.
“Similar to how these homes build upon one another to reach new heights, the mesh of cultures, languages, people and experiences that I encountered on my journey all helped me reach a new peak in my education and in general, my life,” Anderson said.
This exhibit is made possible, in part, by a generous grant from The CH Foundation.
Other students with photographs in the exhibition include:
