For my last excursion with CEA London, we went to visit Oxford one Saturday! I’m so sad our CEA trips are over, but I had a lot of fun at Oxford. Here are some pictures from the trip! Oxford University’s Bodleian Library The streets in Oxford are so collegiate looking! The lawn that inspired Alice in Wonderland. You’re NEVER allowed to step on it! Friends and I outside of New College. Oxford is made up of many different colleges based on topic of study. Amazing stained glass windows…

CEA took our London program on a weekend trip to Yorkshire. Within Yorkshire we went to three different places, the city of York, Fountains Abbey, and Haworth.  First we went to York Minster, a cathedral in the center of York.  Inside York Minster you could light prayer candles! Beautiful stained glass windows adorned every facade of the Minster. The York Minster Orb that displayed the history of York Minster inside it.  Musicians playing outside the Cafe Rouge greeted us before lunch. All the streets in York are so…

Yes, England is known for their English breakfasts,…

To introduce all of the CEA study abroad students to London, CEA provided us with a walking tour of the city’s most famous areas, and then a bus tour which allowed us to see even more of London! It was a great opportunity to get acquainted to the city and snap some pictures! First we went to Trafalgar Square. This area hosts the National Gallery and National Portrait Gallery and has beautiful fountains, statues, and a great view of Big Ben in the distance! We then walked to…

London generally doesn’t get the best reputation for its food.  Most people choose places like France and Italy as food Meccas in Europe, but I can assure you that there is good food in London.  And it might surprise you, but the Indian food in London is actually really amazing.  If you are visiting London, you should definitely try some Indian food.  Due to the high population of Indian immigrants in London, there is some of the best Indian food in the world in this city.  One of…

My housing at Goldsmiths College in London – a great set-up for those looking to study abroad! Jennifer Sanfilippo is the Fall 2012 CEA MOJO in London

The good thing about studying abroad is that it allows you to learn things that you can take home with you.  I plan on applying the skills that I acquire while studying in London to my life in America.  I think that this will be particularly helpful once I graduate from college and start thinking about my career.     In virtually any job environment, I feel that I will be able to apply things that I learned while studying abroad.  One of the most important things that I…
