    • Shore Reflection

    • England Term
    • The solitude expressed in this print of Kana Sterr looking out to the island of Arran in the North Channel is representative of our pensive mood that afternoon on the beach in Ayr, Scotland. We had only been abroad for one week, which was spent...
    • Camelvanting' Wadi Rum Style

    • Leaders for Change in Jordan and Israel
    • During our time in the Wadi Rum desert we were able to stay overnight and ride back on camels for several hours the next morning. It was an incredible experience riding in one of the most surreal places on earth, as the Wadi Rum desert is...
    • Italian Experience

    • Paint and Pedal
    • I wanted to remember this small coastal town with its brightly colored houses clustered on a steep slope. This was the essence of my Italian experience.
    • Mombasa Bubbles

    • Daystar University
    • Walking along the coast of the Indian Ocean in Mombasa, men come at you from every direction asking “Snorkel?” “Scuba?” “Ride my boat?” or “Want to buy a hand carved key chain?” Many will grab your attention by shouting “Mzungu! Mzungu!” “White...
    • Villa Turquoise

    • Kenya Interim Program
    • While in Kenya, we were able to experience both day to day life and also see some of the luxury Kenya has to offer. We stayed in a villa on the beach, complete with our own pool. The contrast between the poor and rich in Kenya can be seen by simply...
    • Little Treasures

    • Creation Care Study Program (CCSP)
    • We spent a week at Glover’s Atoll for our marine ecology class. More than once I’d stop in my tracks, look down at the hermit crabs scampering over the white sand, look up at the abundance of coconuts dangling from the palm trees, look around at...
    • 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...
    • 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...
    • Opportunities in an Open Window

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication in Austria, Czech Republic, and France
    • This photo was taken from the Schloss Mittersill in Austria. The Schloss is a renovated medieval castle that now serves as a Christian conference and study centre. Roughly half of my semester abroad was spent at the Schloss and it was truly an...
    • A Wednesday in San Lorenzo Market

    • Academic Programs International (API)
    • The San Lorenzo Market is in Florence Italy. Walking through the market is a daily cultural experience as the Italian merchants call for you to buy their t-shirts, silk scarves and leather goods.  It is impossible to resist the urge to stop and...
    • Natives of Galway

    • Arcadia, National University of Ireland
    • The swans in this photo live on the River Corrib, which flows through the middle of Galway, Ireland. It is impossible to avoid the river (or the swans) if you spend any meaningful time in the city. I captured this photo on a visit to the bay one...
    • The Far Side of the Sea

    • EduVenture
    • This photo was taken at Natandola Beach on Viti Levu, the main island of Fiji. It is of a native Fijian on horseback. This photo captures the essence of the tropical isolation of Fiji. From here in the U.S., Fiji is literally on the far side of...
    • 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,...
    • Shining with the Setting Sun

    • Japan Travel Writing
    • After hiking for most of the day and still having a ways to go before my friends and I could rest we stumbled upon a shrine tucked away in the mountains. Low on motivation and beginning to regret our decision to go hiking on one of the few free...
    • Baba’s Meze

    • Global Learning Semesters (GLS)
    • In Cyprus, one of the most enjoyable evenings is one spent indulging in Greek meze and dance at a traditional Cypriot restaurant. To find an evening reservation for our last meze before returning home, we walked the restaurant-packed streets on the...
    • Outside the Noise

    • Arcadia University: Perugia, Italy
    • This photograph was taken in St. Peter's piazza in front of the Vatican. It is one of my favorites because it represents a quiet moment in a place so alive with sound. The day was filled with so many famous things to see in Rome with so much...
    • Guatemalan Buses

    • Guatemala Term
    • It is impossible to visit Guatemala without noticing the buses. Every bus is pained a multitude of different colors, has a headline in the front window, is filled well beyond capacity, and has a man who stands on the steps shouting out the bus’s...
    • Sunrise on Charles Bridge

    • Europe Term Intercultural Communication
    • Charles Bridge, started in 1357, is always teeming with crowds. On the last morning of our stay in Prague, I ventured onto the bridge to experience it with less people around. I was totally surprised by the sight. In the misty fog of this ancient...
    • The Chase

    • Uganda Studies Program (USP)
    • A group of Uganda Studies Program students traveled to western Uganda for an unforgettable experience. We were riding on a ferry when we witnessed this hippo fight.
    • 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....
