The Study Abroad Student Showcase is an exhibit of photographic works from students who participated in Summer 2022 programs who travelled to Prague, Czech Republic. They have selected images to exhibit as part of this show both fulfilling the class curriculum as well as an opportunity for professional development through and reflection on their experiences abroad. Every season, the Ed Abroad office asks students to submit images along predetermined themes for a photography contest.

In the category of “Embracing New Cultures,” Lee Holoubek from PCC’s Czech Republic Program was the winner with Ivory Bradshaw from the Costa Rica Program; In the category of “Self Discovery,” Patricia Bill from the Australia Program was the winner and Pascua Pezani as well as Deborah Lev from the Costa Rica and Czech programs, respectively, were runners up for this category.
