— Margaret Colvin, Summer 2017
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
Learning that I can function thousands of miles away from anything that is familiar to me. I had never been this far away from home before, and never for 6 weeks. In that time I climbed a mountain, went to three different countries, saw incredible art and found myself stronger than when I left.
— Landreth Everitt, Summer 2017

— Julia Turpin, Summer 2017
What were the most significant take-aways from your experience?
The best thing about studying abroad in London was actually learning how to live and survive in a major city. This experience has given me the confidence to travel and get my way around a city. I also really enjoyed seeing so much professional theatre.
— Lukas Woodyard, Summer 2017
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Definitely do it! 6 weeks is long enough to start to feel like a local, but short enough that everything still seems new and exciting. Not only did we have some fantastic experiences together, we had the flexibility to schedule things that we were interested in - like shows, museums, shopping, and weekend trips.
— Kelsey Brown, Summer 2017
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Be prepared to be uncomfortable. Don't be afraid to separate from the group and explore on your own.
— Chanel Bryan-pinnock, Summer 2017
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Be afraid, and embrace being afraid. That's how you know you're about to do something incredibly important with your life. If you weren't scared of it, it wouldn't matter at all.
— Landreth Everitt, Summer 2017
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
If you're scared, do it anyway. If you're homesick, do it anyway.
— Kara Joyce, Summer 2017
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Absolutely go on the program! London is an awesome city, you get a lot of freedom to experience it, and George is awesome.
— William Reichert, Summer 2017
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
Take advantage of every opportunity! Don't be afraid to say yes and take chances.
— Julia Turpin, Summer 2017
How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
Living in London was a great introduction to city life. The tube commute definitely got me ready for commenting on DC's metro for my job next year. Besides that, working in the theatre industry, it is always important to stay current on theatre. There is so much out there and it can be hard to read/ see/ take in all of it. This trip is a true gift: 6-weeks to focus on nothing from the real world, but instead immerse yourself in theatre exploration.
— Kelsey Brown, Summer 2017
How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
I was allowed to work on set for a commercial running wardrobe which is what I want to do as a first job. So getting to do that and succeed/have fun made me want to go out and do it even more!
— Margaret Colvin, Summer 2017
How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
This definitly solidified my desire to go into arts education and arts therapy. After seeing how open and devoted everyone in the UK was towards solving health obstacles and education inequality, it makes me want to bring that back to the US.
— Landreth Everitt, Summer 2017
How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
I loved my internship to pieces and I can't wait to broaden my horizons to include the world of magazine publishing.
— Kara Joyce, Summer 2017
How did the experience impact you and your future educational/career/personal goals?
It made me consider more seriously if this is the career path I want to follow
— William Reichert, Summer 2017
