Summer 2019 Participant
N/A Only thing I would change was to put screens on the windows of the dorm.

Summer 2019 Participant
This experience in London is utterly wonderful. It is a great program for all majors; myself being in chemical engineering, I found it left me more enlightened and well-rounded. It fed my deep-rooted curiosity for all things related to history, geography, art, and humanities. I would recommend it to anyone from the bottom of my heart. Nothing has felt more liberating and educational than this trip to London.

FIONA Jean HANNAN, Summer 2018 Participant
This program is exceptionally valuable for the cost -- but the life changing experience is truly priceless. Our residence was right across the street from Hyde Park, which literally made waking up each morning seem like a fairytale. If you allow yourself to be fully immersed in the culture of England, it's impossible not to make new friends and leave with loads of compelling stories to last a lifetime. Perhaps the only downside to the program was the cost of living in London; that is the price you pay for 6 weeks living such a posh lifestyle! (Worth every penny!) I felt many of the happiest and most fulfilling emotions during my time abroad. I have grown so much as an individual. I cannot emphasize enough how much this trip enriched my life. The course content was highly engaging, the performances we saw were THE most captivating productions I've ever seen, but most notably, the imprint London left on my personage is intensely profound. The advertisement of the theatrical and educational experience you receive abroad is true... but there is no way to express the long term effects this program can have on your life unless you experience it yourself!

ADRIENNE KRUEGER, Summer 2019 Participant
It feels cheesy to say but this program really did change my life. London is such an amazing city and there is a truly endless amount of things to do, places to visit, and food to eat. This program allows you to experience all of that while still learning so much and earning six credit hours! Your flat is in one of the most beautiful neighborhoods in the city, literally across the street from Hyde Park. You get to see some of the best theatrical productions in the world all included in the program cost! You go to class twice a week, but I genuinely looked forward to going to class and hearing what everyone had to say about the most recent performance we attended. It really is the opportunity of a life time and I can't recommend it enough!
