Going to school at Harlaxton College was amazing! It's an experience I will never forget. Living in a castle for four months, learning British History (which was brought to life in my traveling) and experiencing British life (through the Meet A Family Program) all enriched my college years to a memory I will never forget. -Katie
My abroad experience took my breath away. From the moment we arrived through the gates, I knew this was going to be an adventure. – Morgan
