Although the number of St. Olaf College students who participated in study abroad and study away programs this past year remained lower than usual in the wake of the pandemic, Oles still embarked on adventures around the globe and across the country. And as they have for nearly four decades, many submitted their photography for the annual Gimse Global Engagement Photo Contest.
The contest is named in honor of Professor Emeritus of Art A. Malcolm (Mac) Gimse ’58 and his wife, Jackie. They took groups of students abroad 20 times, helping more than 500 Oles achieve an informed global perspective. An accomplished photographer, Mac took thousands of photos during his travels and used those photos to the benefit of the students who took his art history and architecture classes on campus.
The following images were captured by students in England, France, Hungary, Ireland, Northern Ireland, South Korea, Taiwan, Florida, Hawaii, Oregon, Washington, and Washington, D.C.
