From Books to the Great Beyond

“Overall, this experience was an amazing way to end my undergraduate career. I was able to learn about topics that I had never learned about before, and the travel to London made my experience so much more rewarding. Being able to see the sights of the characters and historical figures we studied helped me understand our texts so much better than I would have if I was just learning in a classroom. I am so thankful to have had this opportunity, and I know that I will remember it for the rest of my life.”


-- Maddie Hellwig, English major


“The trip to London was something I will never forget. The informational part of the visit is something I believe is irreplaceable compared to the average tourist that is going to view the bridge and take photos in the phone booth. It served as motivation to what life can be and motivation to go back to London. This trip, this course, and my teachers have all changed my life forever.”
