FASS Student Photo Contest Spring 2013

April 22, 2013

First Place

Alex Kwok, English

This photograph captures what students experience attending classes on the SFU Burnaby campus at 8:30 in the morning. Despite the hour, the SFU campus, coated with fog, is simply gorgeous.

Second Place

Talisa Nyte, International Studies

This photo of Tibetan monks was taken near Dharamshala in Northern India on Triund Hill in the Himalayas. The Dalai Lama's residence and the headquarters of the exiled Tibetan government are situated at McLeodGanj, a village within Dharamshala.

Third Place

Cory Lagasse,  School of Resource and Environmental Management

At a field course on Calvert Island,  B.C., we explored beaches and picked up garbage that washed ashore.  Even though the islands are isolated, we managed to fill dozens of garbage bags - mostly styrofoam blocks and old fishing gear.

Honourable Mention

Angela Jang, English

This photo was taken from the Eiffel Tower in Paris while on a co-op placement as an English language assistant in France. Despite differences between Canadian and French culture, everyone is under one sky and sun in the Parisian cityscape.

Honourable Mention

Maria Asselin-Roy, Sociology/Anthropology

This photo, taken in the hills of Belize bordering Guatemala, is from a field school of Douglas College and SFU students based out of Galen University in San Ignacio, Belize. It was taken at the end of a hike to the anthropological Mayan site of Lower Dover.
