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.
