Be adventurous! Your time abroad is short; take advantage of every opportunity that you have and make the effort to become friends with everyone you're traveling with.

My favorite part of the British Summer Institute was the way that our experiences connected to what we were learning in the classroom. We were able to see so many amazing sights in such a short time, and were guided by wonderful professors who knew and loved the subjects they were teaching. We saw many incredible sights with the group, but also had free time to explore and attend events that related to our specific interests. I was able to attend many concerts and musicals while abroad, which was one of my favorite things to do. I loved seeing the museums, cathedrals, churches, landscapes and talking with the kind locals in each town. I had time to take it all in, and enjoy each moment.

My favorite part of this program was experiencing so much of British culture. Not only did we learn about London and live life in this city, but we also had the opportunity to live in Edinburgh and get a taste of Northern life. I feel that this study abroad program is extremely well rounded and allowed me to fully experience the United Kingdom from central London to the Scottish Highlands.
