Student Photo of the Week

The Immaculata Church at night

"'Sometimes a different perspective is all you need.' This photo is from behind campus on the Gardena Loop Trail, part of the beautiful Tecolote Canyon perserve... The beautiful lighting of the sunset highlights just how much work was put into creating our wonderful campus." Thank you Katie Banks for submitting this photo!

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.
