With so many students studying in far-flung locations—about 36 percent of all juniors—the Office of Off-Campus Studies holds an annual photography contest so students can show off what they’re up to.

These photos were taken by: [clockwise from top left] Anya Tudisco ’16, in India; Molly Emmett ’15 in the Czech Republic; Natalie Lyons-Cohen ’16 in Denmark; and Tudisco in India again. The top two photos won first-place honors in the contest.

“The Taj. Cliche maybe,” began Tudisco’s photo statement. “But not overrated… No matter how many times you see this image in books and movies, it can never compare to the feeling of awe and wonder standing in its shadow.”

Whitman students can choose from more than 86 semester- or year-long programs in 40 countries, studying, for instance, Ghanaian culture in Accra, intensive Mandarin in Beijing or Shakespeare in London.
