Study Abroad for a Semester
Before you change the world,
let the world change you!
George Fox Student Honored by the Scholars' Semester in Oxford Study Abroad Program
"One of my favourite moments at Oxford was a quiet and solemn one. I was sitting in Duke Humphrey's library in the Bodleian (the library where they house the ancient special collections, and also the library where they filmed Harry Potter.) Furiously reading and writing a paper in the middle of term, 1 sat back and sighed in a moment of pure weakness and feeling of defeat. I sank low in my seat, shut the laptop, and closed my eyes. When I re-opened my eyes I was staring at the leather-bound books in front of me. I realized, in that moment, where I was. Looking around at the ancient books that were older than my country, the Latin inscriptions lining the walls of the donors to the library hundreds of years ago, the crests of the schools on the painted wooden ceiling. I sighed again, but this time in awe. I was sitting, frustrated, where many of the worlds' greatest intellectuals have sat frustrated before, as students. I was inspired and uplifted by my surroundings, knowing that I was in a literally awesome place for scholarship. With that, I finished my paper."
