To keep the adventure going, the Office of International Programs is sponsoring a travel photo contest. All you need to do is share your photos of your favorite spots, happiest moments, and the friends you made along the way. It's a chance to win great prizes and see your photos on SHU Facebook and Instagram.

Seton Hall Travel Contest Rules

Start by submitting your best travel photos using #hallabroad (or add the hashtag to travel photos you've already posted on Instagram and Facebook). Be sure to include a brief description of each picture. Your photo may be featured on the University's social media feed. Each month this semester we'll select three photos to be our contest prize winners. Each winner will receive a $25 gift card to the Seton Hall bookstore.

Here are the contest categories for September:

  1. Best Portrait 
  2. Happiest Group Photo 
  3. Most Scenic Image

Now is a great time to start planning your next trip. The Office of International Programs will help find a study abroad option that's right for you. Students can travel through the University's semester abroad exchange programs and faculty-led tours, as well as with our partner organizations that lead trips to many exciting international destinations. Over the past summer, 85 students studied and interned in 13 different nations across the globe. Seton Hall students traveled to Haiti, France, Malta, Bosnia, China, Togo and beyond. Some students completed an internship overseas, while others participated in exchange programs and studied with one of our partner organizations. This summer, 66 students joined our faculty-led programs to experience fascinating cities including Rome, Tokyo, Sarajevo, and Nanjing, as only insiders can! During the month of July, for example, a group of students traveled with Professor Daniel Zalacain to Alicante, Spain. Students were able to experience the Spanish culture as a local by living with a host family.
