Student Photo of the Week

The sun shines bright on the right side of the photo, looking west over Torero Stadium and campus.

"After preparing all year and wanting my dreams to manifest, I took a brief moment here and realized they had already actualized: I'm here where I want to be." Thank you Krystal Monroe for sharing this photo from outside Copley Library!

Calling all students! We want to feature you in "Student Photo of the Week." Send us original photos that convey your campus experience or simply capture beauty, and add a short caption about your inspiration for the photo. 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 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.

*By submitting a "Student Photo of the Week," you agree to our terms.
