Student Photo of the Week

The Immaculata is seen through the brown branches of a leaf-less tree

"We mostly appreciate campus when it is sunny and looks like a perfect paradise. Taking this photo under the clouds and seeing The Immaculata through the branches of this dried-up tree provides a different lens to view our campus." Thank you Vayunamu Bawa for sharing 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.*

Send your photo to dcim@sandiego.edu


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.
