Annual Study Abroad Photo Contest

1st-place-candi-lee-china“I always thought language was the most significant factor when traveling to a foreign country. However, I learned language is not as important as one might think in terms of communicating with someone from across the globe. Smiles and laughter hold a universal meaning–these signs were enough for these two girls to communicate.” 2015-16 Winning Photo by Candi Lee.
