Photo Exhibit Showcases Students’ Best Study Abroad Photos

Written by Megan Robare

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 opening reception will take place from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday (March 4) at the International Cultural Center, 601 Indiana Ave. The event is free and open to the public.

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.

Jenna Anderson, a Texas Tech study abroad 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.

Other students with photographs in the exhibition include Carly Anderson, Kyle Brown, Alexis Campestre, Rachel Clark, Sara Collins, Amanda Cox, Heather Darnell, James Donovan, Sarah Doyle, Jessica Fannin, Stephanie Grand, Taylor Hardin, Jarvis Jackson, Melanie Mann, Julie Meadows, Jaime Resendiz, Daniel Salas, Ashlee Schertz, Danica Simons, Matlin Smith and Sunny Tang.
