London is filled with an endless variety of attractions and events, and the amazing central location of the student flats puts the city at your doorstep. Students consistently report that they spent no time in their flats--there's just too much to see and do to waste any time inside!
The London Program also offers several program-organized trips to compliment students' independent explorations of London and nearby destinations. Program trips to the theater are an almost weekly occurrence, and theatrical offerings range from Shakespeare to contemporary comedy. Day trips to locations like Stonehenge, Bath, and Warwick Castle occur during the semester on weekends. In addition, one or two overnight trips takes students further afield: past destinations include the Southwest coast and the Lake District in the UK, and Normandy, France. Program excursions are designed to enhance the program curriculum, and, in fact, trips to museums and sites in London are an everyday part of London program coursework: instead of just reading Mrs. Dalloway, follow her footsteps around London! Learning about architecture? Go visit Westminster Cathedral! Taking a Shakespeare course? Watch an innovative performance of A Midsummer's Night's Dream!
