Student Photo of the Week

Photo looking out at desert landscape, two vans with kayaks on the roof head down a dirt road.

"One of the things I learned from studying abroad in New Zealand was to enjoy traveling within my own country so I was excited to get back on the road once I returned home." Thank you Glen Moss for sharing this photo!

Calling all student photographers: we want to feature you in "Student Photo of the Week" in Torero Weekly. Send us original photos that capture Torero spirit, highlight an event or convey campus beauty. If selected, we will mention your name in the byline!

As part of an initiative aimed at reducing the number of campus-wide emails, the Department of University Communications has developed the Torero Weekly, which aggregates announcements and events aimed at the entire campus community (faculty, students and administration/staff) into a communication disseminated campus wide each Monday during the academic year.

To learn more about Torero Weekly or to submit an event, please review the Torero Weekly web page on the University Communications website.
