Overall Experience
For one thing I learned a great deal about English history and Shakespeare, two subjects I have been fascinated with since birth. I also learned how to travel intelligently, both in groups and on my own, and how to complete assignments in a condensed time period and under great pressure. Perhaps most importantly, however (forgiv... - Trinity University View Entire Review
I gained a sense of self, the ability to travel alone and know who I was without my friends from home. I traveled to York for the day by myself and put myself in uncomfortable situations like meeting new people in a new place. I learned about a culture that is part of my heritage while experiencing the nation's present. - Millsaps College View Entire Review
The English are much nicer than I was led to believe. The Spanish tourists made my life miserable. - Trinity University View Entire Review

To double check alarms. I missed a flight for weekend travel that had to be repurchased. Other than that, It was very worthwhile. The culture and people were great to see. I was so happy to have got the opportunity to go on this trip. - Trinity University View Entire Review

I made great friends and memories. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Totally. Was really worth living abroad for a while - Trinity University View Entire Review
This program provided me with a lot of life lessons; I feel like I know who I am as a person a lot better. I also met someone from my school I had never met before and now she is one of my best friends. My experience was truly amazing. I didn't want to go home in August; I could have stayed for another three months. View Entire Review
I gained more of an understanding and tolerance for the sort of people who like to drink frequently and a deep appreciation for the history and beauty of England. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Although still very "American," England has an incredible amount of history that we in America lack. The program let us experience everything England's history has to offer. - Trinity University View Entire Review
how to fit in in a completely new and foreign environmrent - Trinity University View Entire Review
Things really are different, even in a country that appears similar to your own. Everyday, I think about how much I want to go back. I want to see and do and learn more. It was completely worth it! - Millsaps College View Entire Review
Past Review S Much Fun!
I learned so much about the history and culture of England in addition to the classes that I was taking. I definitely think that the program was worthwhile! - Trinity University View Entire Review
Absolutely, I learned so much about myself. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Yes, it was a beautiful, though challenging experience. The cultural opportunities are unparalleled and memorable. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Yes it certainly was, I learned a great deal academically and otherwise. - Trinity University View Entire Review
Well, my future plans are to study abroad there again. I enjoyed being in a historically-rich country. - Trinity University View Entire Review
The experience was worth the cost and time, I really learned that there are lots of people I don't like but that there are lots of people I do. I learned that being an American makes a great tourist and that you aren't the only toursit. - Trinity University View Entire Review
A renewed perception of the Medieval world and its intellectual achievements. Although it is of an intellectual elite, most of history involves the elite, anyway. Also improved my views on the Catholic church as an institution devoted to intellectual exploration and scientific endeavours. Definitely worth-while, but you really a... - Trinity University View Entire Review
