PIC Pics: 2018 Study Abroad Photo Contest Finalists
West Wall Gallery, L. V. Eberhard Center
July 13 – October 26, 2018

Every year, over 800 GVSU students travel around the world on a Study Abroad program through the Padnos International Center (PIC). For the 2018 PIC Pics Photo Contest, GVSU students and alumni were invited to share photos from their adventures abroad. The GVSU community glimpsed into the adventures of their fellow Lakers and voted on their favorite images March 9th - 23rd, 2018. The winning photographs were announced March 27, 2018. They are currently on display on the Robert C. Pew Grand Rapids Campus and have become a part of the GVSU permanent collection.
