SA: Oxford University - Pembroke College

Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Oxford University: Pembroke College

Ask me about...

  • Academics abroad. I chose an academically rigorous program rather than one that is primarily a cultural experience, though cultural immersion was certainly a part of the program.

  • Living abroad for the first time. It was my first time living abroad for an extended period of time.

My Experience Abroad:

I studied economics at Oxford as well as some philosophy, my minor.

Other Highlights:

  • Morning walks through Christ Church meadow, where I would go to read philosophy.

  • The biennial Pembroke Ball, a college-wide black tie party with lots of food, drinks, and music.

  • Punting and playing croquet on the lawn--two distinctly Oxford activities.

  • Visiting a friend who was studying abroad in Paris. Seeing Notre Dame burn down live was certainly a low-light.
