    • Feed the Birds

    • Spain Term
    • San Marco’s Square is infested with pigeons. Everywhere you step, you run the risk of being squawked at. And the, instead of shooing them away, you pay € 1 for birdfeed and invite them to climb all over you! Betsy (pictured) and I could have fed...
    • Exhaustion

    • School for International Training (SIT)
    • Exhaustion. This picture took place on a Greek subway after 3 intense days of touring in and around Athens. My fellow American students and I were very exhausted and took this brief moment to relax. Although traveling abroad is exciting and fun,...
    • Childlike Faith

    • Guatemala Term
    • This picture was taken in the Central Park of Guatemala City, Guatemala, in March of 2001. Central Park is located right in the heart of the city, near all of the important government buildings. It is the center of activities and life. Many...
    • The Bereaved

    • South Africa Term
    • The window at Baphumelele Orphanage was a symbol that represented the lives of the orphans who looked through them every day. The orphans learn very early in life that they are neglected, unwanted, and ostracized from their families and the rest of...

    • Dachau

    • Introduction to International Business
    • This picture was taken at Dachau Concentration Camp in Dachau, Germany. It was early morning and our bus dropped us off just down the street from the camp. We all had been talking and cracking jokes like obnoxious Americans but as soon as we neared...
    • Fryito

    • Spring Break Missons Trip
    • This picture was taken at an orphanage in Chihuahua, Mexico, during a spring break missions trip last year. I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to go there and play with the children, and also do some work. This child's name is Juyo, but...

    • The Camel Caravan

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)
    • My UMAIE group had decided early in our trip that we wanted to take a camel safari while in Egypt.  We learned that the best place to do so would be not near Cairo, but in Luxor, a smaller city further south, where we would pass through rural...
    • A Silhouette

    • International Studies Abroad (ISA)
    • This picture represents one of the greatest experiences I believe I'll ever have. Three days and two nights we spent away from a crowded and foreign environment to be surrounded only by the calm quiet of the Sahara. We took a long camel ride over...
    • Side Street

    • New York Center for Art & Media Studies (NYCAMS)
    • My friend Chelsea and I were on our way to Greenwich Village in Manhattan, where there is a plethora of expensive shops and designer stores where celebrities deck themselves out in the spendiest trends. Only one street down from the shops, I walked...
    • “Tosh-Tosh”

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • On a weekend trip to Siwa we had the opportunity to be driven in jeeps through the expansive rolling desert dunes. This man, “Tosh-Tosh” (meaning “Crazy” in Arabic) was our driver. He led our small group in a chorus of songs, “Ana mapsuta, ana...
    • Pigeon Play

    • History of Science in Europe
    • Many Italians draw their customs and cultural identity from Roman Catholicism. The Duomo serves as a central beacon to millions of Italians and tourists, Catholic and non-Catholic. Along with our class, thousands of people visited the Duomo on this...
    • Irony

    • Globalization in India
    • In India there are very few trash bins so this is one of them. This photo I feel exposes the irony behind the environmental movement that has taken place so far in India. It is very simple, but it captures the essence of a material society. All...
    • Colors of India

    • Minnesota Studies in International Development (MSID)
    • All of these girls are from rural villages around Jaipur, India. They have come to Budh Shiksha Samiti (a Nongovernment Organization) to get the quality education that they won’t receive if they stay in their villages. I did an internship with this...
    • A Bump in the Road

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • This photograph illustrates circumstances that most of us are all too familiar with. Whether it is a simple family road trip or a bumpy ride up a volcanic mountain in the Galapagos Islands, a bump in the road, almost always presents itself. These...
    • Drikung Monastary

    • School for International Training (SIT)
    • Drikung Monastery is well known by Tibetans from all across Tibet. This holy location is where many take those who have passed on to receive a proper and respectful death rite. The ceremony begins the night before, with the monks encircling the...
    • Across Cultures

    • History of Science in Europe
    • In my brief time spent overseas observing and discovering new places with new cultures, customs, and ways of life became part of the experience. However, it struck me that as significant as the origins and lineage of modern science are, so, too,...
    • Rooftops

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • My Egyptian Arabic instructor Mediha often spoke of the dust storms that occasionally strike Cairo with little warning in the winter and spring months. Her descriptions of these natural phenomena (dictated in a thick Middle-Eastern accent) always...
    • Bienvenidos

    • Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands
    • We are just pulling into our last port in ferrying into the Galapagos Islands, and we were given a taste of the old world. A couple of sea lions made use of an old fishing boat that was anchored. It was an uncanny symbol of the slow, deliberate,...
