Images From Around the World

Every year, hundreds of Lutes study away throughout the world in places like Neah Bay, Norway, Tacoma’s Hilltop neighborhood, and Trinidad. As students return to campus and reflect on their time away, the Wang Center accepts photo submissions in our annual contest to showcase the value of global education.

The 12 winning photos from the 2017 Photo Contest are on display in the Anderson University Center. We hope you’ll take the opportunity to view these amazing scenes and learn more about the places our students have visited during their study away journeys!

Yasmine Haro’s photo, “Ashton Lane,” was awarded as the Wang Center Staff Pick.  The photo is on display in the Wang Center.  Come check it out!

You can see all of the winners through the interactive map of our 2017 contest winners.
