- Student Spotlight: Aileen McKinstry, English and History major , Study Abroad in London, England: “I treasured the opportunities to explore museums bursting with centuries’ worth of history (especially the British Museum), to experience a Shakespeare production at the Globe Theater and another at Stratford-Upon-Avon, and also to find amazing places to eat! In essence, I loved the chance to live in London, if only for weeks, because it afforded me the chance to culturally immerse myself somewhere so similar, yet so different to home.”
