London field trips are the best!

Caleb Bryce Masten, Spring 2016 Participant
I do want to express how thankful and pleased I was with program staff. From Dr. McClung to Ms. Barbara to Mr. Ryan Williamson and Dr. Owsiak, all were very helpful and really seemed to care about ensuring that the students in my program were well cared for and provided the maximum opportunity to benefit from the program. I would like to make special note of Ryan Williamson's efforts, as graduate assistant, to go above and beyond his designated duties. He of course always made sure the house was locked up and the alarm activated and dealt very professionally with any personal disputes within the house. However, he often went beyond that in checking in on students and their studies, offering advice, and making himself available anytime a student needed to contact him (which can be difficult with odd hours and limited phone capabilities that many students experience). I would also like to make note of Dr. Owsiak's efforts. Dr. Owsiak invited all of our program in small groups to dinner at his flat over the course of the program. In this endeavor, and many smaller ones, Dr. Owsiak really seemed to get to know all the students in our program. As faculty, his advice and willingness to discuss class and career topics enhanced the academic community of the program.

Make every effort to engage with the culture. This is where you will learn the most about the world and yourself.

I learned how to convey my thoughts more clearly in my writing, and how to argue my opinions one-on-one with my professors. Learning at Oxford takes a great deal of outside work and preparation, and my work ethic has certainly improved. I think my most valuable takeaway, however, has been the appreciation of a different culture and feeling at home in another nation. Learning so much about the opinions, politics, and customs of another people has made me a more cultured and cognizant person, and also much more appreciative of Smiths lyrics.
