Greetings from sunny London!
It's been a busy semester on this side of the pond and we can hardly believe it's final exam period already! Students have just returned to London from various European and UK travels over the Spring break period and I hope you can take the time to read some shared experiences from our resident student blogger Abbie Dodge of Hope College.
CIEE Excursions: Next up on our CIEE excursion calendar is a day trip to Blenheim Palace and Oxford this Saturday followed quickly by a performance of Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare's Globe theatre the next week.
Summer in London: Spring is in the air and CIEE London Summer programmes are just around the corner. Here's a reminder of the programmes we're offering this Summer in London:
CIEE Staff Update: I would like to take the oportunity to introduce CIEE London's Summer Program Coordinator, Samantha Deave. Sam graduated from Warwick University in Psychology in 2010, and having spent many holidays traveling through southern Africa and Eastern Europe, Sam went to live and work in rural China in an international school. After 9 months of English teaching, she took up the position of International Liaison Officer in the same school where she was responsible for international university applications to the UK, USA, Canada and Hong Kong, as well as university decisions, preparation and visits. Having loved the culture and experience in China, after 18 months, Sam decided to return to London where she had grown up to continue her career working with students in international education. Sam is currently finishing a Master's Degree in Chinese Studies from SOAS (School of Oriental and African Studies). Most recently Sam worked at FIE (Foundation for International Education) as Program Coordinator, managing programs such as Northeastern's Freshman in London. We're very excited to have Sam with us for the Summer!
