A collection of photographs by 20 King’s College students who participated in study abroad programs to Eastern Europe, the Peruvian Amazon, and Greece, as well as highlights from other destinations will be on display from Friday, Nov. 11, through Dec. 18 in the Widmann Gallery at King’s College. 

Through its Office of Study Abroad, King’s offers a variety of short-term faculty-led study abroad programs as part of its commitment to global learning and student development. This summer King’s coordinated three short-term faculty-led experiences. Fifteen King’s students and two faculty members travelled to Greece with stops in Athens, Tolo, Ancient Olympia, and Delphi. Greece exhibition students include local residents Lindsay Denion, Mountain Top; Olivia Hoffman, Plymouth; and Krystal Szerszen, Olyphant. 

Thirteen King’s students completed a faculty-led study abroad program to the Los Amigos Biological Research Station in the lowland Amazon forest in Peru. Peru exhibition participants include local resident Amanda Klass of Edwardsville.

Ten King’s students and two faculty members completed a faculty-led study abroad experience to Eastern Europe as part of the King’s Geographies of Europe Series. The trip included excursions to the Czech Republic, Poland, and Slovakia. Central Europe exhibition students include local residents Marissa Durako, Wilkes-Barre; and Caroline Jones, Mountain Top. 

In addition, King’s Study Abroad Program coordinates semester-long study abroad experiences at many universities around the world, including France, Ireland, Italy and Spain. Local students exhibiting work from these experiences are Zachary Hoffman, Dupont (Seville, Spain); Shantal Peleaz, Hazleton (Paris, France); and Matthew Tavaglione, Pittston (Rome, Italy). 

The Widmann Gallery is on the first floor of the Sheehy-Farmer Campus Center, located between North Franklin and North Main streets. Gallery hours: Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.; Saturday and Sunday, as arranged. The Gallery is closed on national holidays.
