    • God's Love for All Nations

    • Guatemala Term
    • The picture was taken on our last excursion. This was taken in a small community on the shores of Lake Atitlan. I thought it was a beautiful depiction of God's love being found in the most random, small community in this beautiful third world...

    • Soaking in the View

    • England Term
    • This picture was taken from the top of Glastonbury Tor, a huge ancient hill near Glastonbury, England. We were all winded from the hike to the top, so most of us just sat down and soaked in the view. The picture is representative of England Term...
    • The Everlasting Light

    • LCC International University (LCC)
    • This picture was taken at a medieval feast in Tallinn, Estonia. Only candles that were constantly burning lighted the whole building. The light that came from these flames reminded me that the light of Christ overcomes the darkness of the world. ...
    • Collision

    • South Africa Term
    • This photo was taken on the ferryboat to Robben Island in Cape Town. It captures a collision of cultures and of generations; everyone in South Africa was impacted by Apartheid on some level and to see the different people that go to Robben Island...
    • Illumination

    • Greece and Turkey Study Tour

    • Natives of Galway

    • Arcadia, National University of Ireland

    • 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...
    • Arc de Triomphe

    • CEA Global Education
    • This picture was taken from the top of the Eiffel tower on a cold, blustery day when my friend Jack and I finally made it to the top. It was our last week in Paris. For me it represented the triumph we felt at making our way in a new culture,...
    • Waking the Nation

    • Greece & Turkey Study Tour
    • This photo was taken at sunrise in Assos, a beautiful port city along the western coast of Turkey. It was a tremendous display of creation amongst the distinct national and cultural identity of Turkey, symbolized here by the tattered Turkish flag.
