    • Fatima Maria Fernanda

    • Guatemala Term
    • I cannot even begin to express the love and joy that the children demonstrated to me in Guatemala. Even through what would be classified as a poverty situation in the United States, these kids would always find time to laugh and enjoy life. They...
    • 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...
    • Humanity

    • International Institute on Political and Economic Studies (IIPES)
    • This past summer (July 2000), I attended the International Institute on Political and Economic Studies sponsored by the Fund for American Studies in cooperation with Georgetown University and the Greek Association for the Atlantic & European...
    • 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...
    • Window of Despair

    • Upper Midwest Association for Intercultural Education (UMAIE)
    • The Day we visited Majdanek was very dreary and rainy. It was the type of weather that chilled you to the bone. This picture was taken in the corridor right outside the gas chambers where Zycolne B was used to kill an estimated 3,000 people. The...
    • In Awe

    • South Africa Term
    • Our Bethel group went on an outing with twenty township children to the "World of Birds". This was the first time some of the children had seen non-native South African animals. They loved the peacocks, turkeys and even the squirrels. Seeing these...
    • Separation from Reality?

    • Middle East Studies Program (MESP)
    • This photo was taken at one of many security checkpoints along the wall separating Israeli occupied Jerusalem and the West Bank town of Bethlehem. It was taken from the Palestinian side. This checkpoint is the one most common for the hordes of...
    • A Way of Living

    • Painting Dominican Landscape
    • This photo was taken in a fishing town called Boca de Yuma. Everyday all the men take these boats out and try to catch fish to provide for their families. Even the little boys will be out fishing on the rocks located next to the boats. I found this...
    • Pisa in Black and White

    • England Term
    • Pisa is a very small town where there really is nothing to see but the Leaning Tower. However, the 45 minute walk is definitely worth the trouble. When you get to the tower, even though you’ve heard about it and you’ve seen photographs, it still...
    • Origins

    • Scholars Semester in Oxford (SSO)
    • York Minster, one of the U.K.'s more significant Anglican cathedrals, is mirrored in the windows of an inn across the street - the inn where 17th-century religious extremist Guy Fawkes was supposedly born. Fawkes participated in a failed plot to...
    • Faith

    • Cultural Diversity in Health Care
    • During our time in Uganda, we had the unique opportunity to stay in a traditional village with a family. Faith was the only family member who spoke no English, yet I had the strongest connection with her. Even though there was a language barrier...
    • Old Logie Kirk

    • Institute for Study Abroad (IFSA)
    • On a rare sunny day in Scotland, my sister and I started out on a hike. We came across a ruined church draped in dense, green ivy before we even left my campus to walk into the hills. The gate leading into the courtyard and cemetery was open so we...
    • Very Irish Day

    • England Term
    • We were at the Cliffs of Mohare in Ireland. One of the things I love about this picture is its emotional connection with the experience. The day was very Irish-it was windy, cold and wet. When we arrived at the cliffs, we had to walk up to the top....
    • Our Aboriginal Dance

    • Australia Term
    • The indigenous people are a very important part of Australian culture. While in Australia, I had the opportunity to talk with adults and even interact with the kids of an Aboriginal community. These communities have litter-strewn streets,...
    • 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,...
    • Strangers with Different Destinations

    • University of La Verne
    • I was on a train traveling between the main center of Athens and one of its suburbs. In order to get to the university, I took an hour-long trip, twice a day, four days a week. Each time I encountered new strangers with different destinations. Some...
