From Kenya to Nicaragua and everywhere in-between, students at the Institute had some amazing adventures over the summer. This week, they had a chance to share the stories from those experiences through a photo exhibit entitled "Around the World in a Night."
"We had this photo exhibit to help bring together students, faculty and staff and show the diversity of their work over the summer," said event organizer Karla Micheli (MPA/IEM '13).
Over 300 photos were submitted for the photo show from individuals and student groups on campus. Twenty-three of those photos were selected and displayed in a gallery-style setting at the event which included hors d’oeuvres, refreshments and plenty of fond recollections.
The photo exhibited was hosted by MIIS Tales, which is a new community-wide storytelling initiative at the Institute that focuses on how cultures have helped shape the identity of individuals in the MIIS community. The group is planning other storytelling events this year including a cross-cultural lunch and a forum for students to showcase their January-term experiences.
If you want to see photos from the event, they are currently on display in the Digital Learning Commons.
