So much, culture, history, people... my behaviors have changed a little. It was most certainly worthwhile. Best thing I ever did - St. Cloud State University View Entire Review
I learned everything; grew as an individual, learned about the history, met a lot of people, and overall the trip completely blew out my expectations and made it AMAZING. I would definitely do it all over again, even if it was more expensive. - St. Cloud State University View Entire Review

Yes, traveling provides you with a perspective that you could not have gotten any other way. Not only do you learn more about another culture, you tend to learn a lot about your own through the differences in your home system to theirs and also the similarities. It gives you the ability to look at the way your country does thing... - St. Cloud State University View Entire Review

It was the best decision I have ever made. I have grown so much from this experience, and the people I went on the program with are like a second family to me now. We've been back in the states since April, and we still keep in contact with each other on a daily basis. - St. Cloud State University View Entire Review
This trip was definitely worthwhile. I have learned so much about the British culture, and many other cultures that I got to see while traveling.

About

The purpose of the British Studies Center in Alnwick, England is to give students an opportunity to spend a semester in a culture different from their own. The program is designed to expose students to new values, customs, and outlooks and to give them an understanding of life in Great Britain. By living within the walls of a medieval castle and study Great Britain both inside and outside the classroom, students gain a historical and contemporary perspective on British life. At the same time, students can make normal progress toward completion of their degree.

Students and faculty reside in Alnwick Castle. Dating from the middle ages, the castle is a large complex of towers, a chapel, a library and two museums. SCSU students and faculty occupy only a portion of the facility. The Duke of Northumberland resides within the castle. Dormitory rooms in the castle accommodate 1-5 students. There is a supplemental charge for a single room. To keep expenses low, students must commit themselves to a certain amount of work, such as cooking and cleaning. This work is usually done in teams. Homestays are also a part of the fall and spring semester programs and are an excellent way of learning about the host culture.
