Education Abroad Photo Contest

In celebration of International Education Week, the Glavin Office of Multicultural & International Education is sponsoring a campus-wide Education Abroad Photo Contest. The deadline for submissions is Monday, November 6th.

If you have recently returned from an educational experience overseas or are attending Babson as an exchange/international student, the Education Abroad Photo Contest is a great way to share your experience and contribute to the global understanding of the greater Babson community.  All faculty, staff and students are encouraged to enter up to two photos to be considered for judging. Share your story with a photo (pdf).
