Purdue classrooms extend far beyond the campus of West Lafayette, especially for students from the College of Health and Human Sciences who take advantage of various study abroad opportunities. Here is a small sampling of what they caught with their cameras overseas.
Lena Gerber, a junior in psychological sciences, found the Opera House in her lens in Sydney, Australia, as an exchange student at the University of Queensland in November 2011.
Halim Yoo, a senior in human development and family studies, brought back a couple of great shots from his studies in India. The first was taken while riding a bicycle rickshaw through the narrow streets of Old Delhi in monsoon season. "It began to rain very hard," Yoo says. "We got soaking wet through the ride, but it was one of the most memorable experiences I had on the trip." On a visit to a school with an ashram, he arrived just in time for morning prayer.
