The Gimse International & Off-Campus Studies Photo Contest
The Office of International and Off-Campus Studies is pleased to announce that the annual photo contest has been named The Gimse International and Off-Campus Studies Photo Contest in honor of Professor Mac and Jackie Gimse. Mac has taught at St. Olaf for 31 years in the Art Department. During that time they have taken groups of students (both enrolled college students and Life Long Learning groups) on international study programs twenty times. They have led the Global Semester three times and the Term in Asia and the Term in the Middle East programs each twice. In addition the Gimses have led nine interims to European destinations and four Life Long Learning Groups to places all over the globe.
In all of these programs, Mac and Jackie have led over 500 students, assisting them in achieving an informed global perspective while becoming long-term extended family. An accomplished photographer, Mac took thousands of photos during his travels and used those photos to the benefit of the students who took his art history and architecture classes on campus. Congratulations, Mac and Jackie!
The Gimse Photo Contest
Each year, in February, the International and Off-Campus Studies office sponsors a photo contest open to all students who have studied off-campus on St. Olaf International or Domestic programs during Semester I or Semester I/Interim, Interim, Semester II or Yearlong programs. Each student may submit up to five entries. A contest form must accompany each photo. You may also contact Jodi Moen to obtain a form.
