Need to take a break from your all-night study session?  Stretch your legs and learn more about your fellow Gettysburgians by checking out the many student exhibits in Musselman Library.

On the main floor near the apse, there is a great display of photographs and objects from a first-year seminar’s trip to Nicaragua.  The students from Professor Kathy Cain’s 2010 FYS “The World’s Children” wanted an opportunity to see firsthand what they had been discussing in the classroom, so they embarked upon a service learning trip to Nicaragua, and captured their experiences through pictures.

In the cases outside of the Browsing Room, there is another collection of photographs taken by Gettysburg College students during their travels abroad.  This exhibit highlights students studying abroad in the Middle East with some very powerful images.

Get to know some of the international students through the Latin American Culture Week exhibit which includes photos of Gettysburg College Latin American students, along with information about each of their countries.  This exhibit was part of the Latin American Culture Week celebration that took place earlier this spring.

The Browsing Room boasts photographs from past and current students who entered in the College’s “Photo of the Day” competition.  Images include scenes from on-campus, as well as adventures abroad.

Finally, take a trip up the main stairwell, and enjoy “The Colors of Singapore,” a photographic exhibit courtesy of three Gettysburg College students who accompanied Professor VoonChin Phua on a research trip to Singapore during the summer of 2011.
