University of South Carolina Lancaster Students
Win Awards for New Orleans Photography
Tyler Reeves and Hannah Morgan, University of South Carolina Lancaster
students, received awards for their photographs taken during a
travel study trip to New Orleans in June 2012. Reeves’s photo
won first prize, while Morgan’s submissions won runner-up
and honorable mention.
Both students were enrolled in the summer 2012 Literature of New
Orleans class taught by English professors Dr. Chris Bundrick and
Dr. Nick Lawrence. The curriculum included a one-week stay in New
Orleans, during which the class read A Confederacy of Dunces and
explored facets of the city. Fran Gardner, professor of art and
art history, provided the students with the guidelines for the
contest before the trip. There were a total of 30 submissions
for the contest from the thirteen students who participated in
the travel study program. The submissions were judged by
USCL professors Bundrick, Lawrence, Gardner, and Brittany Taylor.
The prize-winning photos will be on display in Hubbard Hall on
the USC Lancaster campus. Special thanks to Dean John Catalano,
Laura Humphrey and the Student Affairs office for supporting the
travel study program.
Next spring, USCL students in Dr. Dana Lawrence’s ENGL 419
Shakespeare and Italy class will travel to Rome, Venice, and Florence
as part of the 2013 travel study program.
