Where I went: Oxford, England
When I Went: Summer 2009
Program: British Studies at Oxford
Hey! My name is Jenni Frierson and I am a psychology major. I went abroad on British Studies in Oxford, England this past summer (2009). This is a six week program through Rhodes that I highly recommend. I studied History and English of nineteenth century Britain. It was really neat to learn about industrialization and the events leading up to World War I from a British perspective. I went on a number of excursions through the program including trips to Stonehenge, Blenheim Palace, and World War I battlefields in France and Belgium! I traveled with some friends on the weekends to Dublin, Ireland and Paris, France. Overall, the six weeks was an amazing experience. It was by far the best summer of my life and I cannot wait to go back. I am also planning on going abroad this spring (2010) to Florence, Italy for the semester. I am so excited about this opportunity because Florence is one of my favorite cities in the world.
