Study Abroad News

The voting phase of the Office of International Affairs annual International Photography Competition has officially begun. Facebook users can now vote for their favorite photo once every 24 hours through our Facebook app. Online voting will end on November 3, 2014 at 4 p.m. and the top three photos with the highest number of votes will be named the winners.

Ohio State University students, staff, faculty, visiting scholars and alumni were eligible to submit up to three photos in each category of the contest: People, Places and Animals. Over 900 entries were received this year.


The Office of International Affairs will continue its partnership with the Gateway Film Center this semester with the Global Engagement Film Series. The series promotes international cinema with a different screening on the fourth Wednesday of each month.

The selected films offer new cultural perspectives, and provide an opportunity to support films from around the world. Students can attend the films for free, and often guest speakers are invited to participate in a Q&A session following the film.

September's screening will be "Finding Fela," a Sundance Film Festival selection which depicts the life of Nigerian musician Fela Kuti.

October's screening will be the Oscar-nominated French film "Persepolis." The film tells a coming-of-age story of a young Iranian girl during the Islamic Revolution.

The November film selection will be released soon. Continue to check our website for updates, or follow us on Facebook.
