Mexico: Summer Service Learning & Language Immersion

Mexico City, Mexico

Traveling Photo Exhibit Will Showcase Students’ Off-Campus Study Experiences

Published: December 9, 2009

Eleven ACM colleges will host an exhibit of photos in early 2010 that vividly tell the stories experienced by students on off-campus study around the world. The exhibit will showcase the winning and honorable mention photos from the second annual ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest. The traveling exhibit will have its first showing at Knox College beginning on January 5.

"Working on Manhood" by Anais Gude (Colorado College) is the Grand Prize photo in the 2009-10 ACM Off-Campus Study Photo Contest.

In all, 95 photos were submitted for the contest, through the ACM colleges’ off-campus study offices, by students who have participated in off-campus study programs, either in the U.S. or other countries. A panel of judges awarded a Grand Prize and First, Second, and Third Place in each of three categories: People, Stories, and Artistry. A selection of Honorable Mention photos will round out the exhibit.

The ACM held its first Off-Campus Study Photo Contest in 2008-09 as part of the consortium’s 50th Anniversary celebration. The event and traveling exhibit proved to be so popular that it has become an annual event.

The ACM colleges have been pioneers in off-campus study and have collaborated since the early 1960s to provide consortial off-campus study opportunities in the U.S. and around the world. The photo contest celebrates this history and the important role that off-campus study plays in liberal arts education.

Grace Robia My experience in Mexico was incredible and I’ve been missing it since I stepped foot on the airplane back to the U.S. Watching the World Cup games with 35-50 soccer-obsessed Mexicans was of the most unforgettable things I’ve ever done. All of the Mexicans that I met were enthusiastic, fun-loving, open, and kind. I’d take the first chance that arose and fly right back to Mexico City. ¡Viva México!
