Photo Contest

Submit some pictures for the Study Abroad Photo Contest.  You can see past submissions on our Facebook page.  Submissions must be made by October 1 of each year to blair@olemiss.edu, preferably high resolution so we can see them in all their glory.  You can also submit a CD or thumb drive to our office (318 Martindale) if you prefer.  Submit as many as you want!

Winners will receive a gift certificate to the Barnes and Noble bookstore, a print of your photo, and bragging rights!  First Place, Second Place, Third Place, and Honorable Mention will be awarded.

Video Volunteers

We would also like to create some videos for future students to watch and learn about your experience.  These videos will only be a few minutes long, and we would like to have a few perspectives on the topics below.  Please email blair@olemiss.edu to volunteer, and we will schedule a time for you to come in!

Topics may include: 
- Why should students study abroad?
- Budgeting for your program
- Living in a Home Stay
- Using Public Transportation
- Food Allergies and How to Manage Them Abroad
- Meeting People/Locals Abroad
- Adjusting to Classes Abroad
- Extracurricular Activities
- Technology Use Abroad (Skype, Wi-Fi, Cell Phones, etc.)
- ANYTHING YOU THINK MIGHT BE HELPFUL!  Please feel free to suggest topics.
