2015 Cornell ABROAD Photo Exhibit

Stop by the photo exhibit in the Art Gallery of Willard Straight Hall
to see amazing photos taken by Cornell students while studying abroad.
Cornell Abroad annually hosts the Photo Exhibit to highlight the photography of Cornell students returned from around the world. From hundreds of entrants, we chose the ones in the show, as well as three winners and a number of Honorable Mentions. We've posted below last year’s top three winners. Visit the exhibit and see for yourself this year’s stunning photographs. The exhibit is open April 6 - April 22, 2015, in the Willard Straight Hall Art Gallery, when the building is open.
Cornell Abroad administers undergraduate study internationally during a semester or full academic year. More than 500 students from all the colleges study abroad in over 40 countries annually.  Our office has brief First Steps meetings every Tuesday and Friday at 2pm in 250 Caldwell Hall. These meetings help you assess which programs would suit you best by educational style, major, geography, and your other goals. Where in the world might you go?
After you have been to a First Steps, if you would like to discuss the programs you have chosen, you can make an appointment with an Advisor on the Getting Started page.
