The 5th Annual French & Italian Studies Study Abroad Photo Contest was a resounding success. Over 20 students submitted photos and over 120 people from the French & Italian studies community voted on their favorite photos. This year we had 16 finalists with excellent photographs taken across France and Italy.  The finalists' photos are displayed in the main hallway on the 2nd floor of Padelford Hall C-Wing.
