The images from off-campus study — both the everyday and the extraordinary — resonate in students’ minds years after their experience.
“A Long Car Ride” by Kevin Close, Carleton College
As part of ACM’s 50th Anniversary celebration, the consortium sponsored the ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest, inviting students at ACM colleges to share the images and impressions they gathered from studying in locations around the world.
The Grand Prize was awarded to Kevin Close of Carleton College for “A Long Car Ride,” a photo taken during his studies in Mongolia and simply described as “One student, one translator, and ten goats.”
A traveling exhibit of the ten winning photos and a selection of honorable mention photos is being hosted by ACM campuses through April. See all the photos in the exhibit and read more about the contest and the traveling exhibit.
