La Roche College Presents Study Abroad Photo Exhibit

Beyond the Classroom PITTSBURGH, Sept. 13, 2017 – From now until Sept. 30, La Roche College will present “Beyond the Classroom,” an exhibit of student photography depicting the College’s study abroad courses.

The exhibit, located in the Cantellops Art Gallery, is open to visitors from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. each day. Featuring approximately 130 photographs, “Beyond the Classroom” highlights the 2016-2017 Study Abroad+Study USA experiences in Russia, Germany and Austria, the Netherlands, Peru and Japan.

Assistant Director of Study Abroad+Study USA Nicole Gable said, “The exhibit is a combination of photos and testimonials from students and faculty, which shows the varied opportunities and experiences of each trip. From a home-stay on an island in Lake Titicaca, to dinner at a family’s home in Greece, the activities are designed to promote active engagement in the host culture. We often set up conversations with students at universities, and invariably the students are surprised at how much they have in common with their peers. The exhibit highlights some of these interactions.”

Included with the cost of tuition, Study Abroad+Study USA offers La Roche students the opportunity to travel internationally or domestically at little or no additional cost. The program covers the cost of lodging, travel and most meals; students only are responsible for incidentals such as passport fees, visas and souvenirs.

For more information about study abroad options or “Beyond the Classroom,” please contact Nicole Gable: nicole.gable@laroche.edu or 412-536-1022.
