International Photo Contest

Every fall, WWC students, faculty, and staff are invited to submit photographs from their travels abroad. The photos are displayed anonymously, and the Warren Wilson community has a chance to vote for their favorites.

The photo shows bathers at the fountains of the Holy Water Spring (Tampak Siring). Caroline studied abroad focusing on Thai language and cultural studies at Warren Wilson’s partner institution, Payap University in Thailand last semester. In addition to exploring Thailand, Caroline had the opportunity to travel to neighboring nations including Indonesia.
