STUDY ABROAD PHOTO EXHIBITION SCHEDULED UNTIL NOV. 8 AT LA ROCHE COLLEGE
PITTSBURGH, Oct. 29, 2013 – The La Roche College Study Abroad+Study USA (SA+SUSA) Program presents LRX: Guatemala – A Study Abroad+Study USA Experience in Photos by Eric D. Miller Photography.
The display includes photos taken by senior film, video and media student Eric D. Miller while participating in The La Roche Experience (LRX): Guatemala, a travel course where students completed a service project to rebuild the roof of a residence hall at a school for orphans. The course was offered through SA+SUSA, a program providing students with the opportunity to study abroad or domestically at little or no cost.
The exhibition will be held in the Cantellops Art Gallery at the College’s main campus in McCandless Township until Nov. 8. Admission is free and open daily to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., including weekends.
LRX aims to provide students with the opportunity to experience and share the mission and heritage of The Congregation of the Sisters of Divine Providence, an international community of vowed women and associates who seek to make God’s Providence visible by responding to the needs of the time and co-creating a world of compassion, justice and peace.
La Roche seeks to provide all undergraduate students with an intercultural experience before they graduate. Included with tuition, SA+SUSA offers students a unique opportunity to broaden their horizons and marketability in an ever-expanding global workplace. After completing 60 La Roche credits and meeting all eligibility requirements, students may apply for an international or domestic travel course. Since SA+SUSA is a value-added component of a La Roche education, students are only responsible for incidentals such as: passport costs, visas and spending money.
