the last frontier

P1030528We had too many awesome photos to choose from for this issue’s “Syllabus”—definitely a good problem for a magazine editor or designer to have.

SOC professor Larry Engel’s popular course, Classroom in the Wild: HD Alaska, challenges adventure-seeking filmmakers to push the limits of their bodies and their cameras. The class is intense; students spend two weeks on campus and 8 to 10 days in Alaska, learning survival techniques and filming micro-documentaries on environmental and wildlife issues.

Larry gave us a plethora of postcard-worthy photos to choose from. Here are a few of our favorites:
