Fairleigh Dickinson has a study abroad program where they send approximately 55 students to Wroxton, England for 3 and a half months of travel, rigorous academia, and full cultural immersion. However, placing a group of 19-21 year-olds, primarily based from New York and New Jersey in an Abbey, where every class, meal, study session, and hang out is together, it certainly leaves plenty of excitement to boil up. Who better to explain the Wroxton experience better than the Jersey Shore crew themselves?
Boarding the plane to England
Trying to figure out who the one non-FDU student is
Forming new friendships like...
When you win a VIP booth at Moo Moos
Friday night and YJ Cars are lined up in front of the Abbey
When they bump dinner up to 6:00pm but it's midnight and you're starving
Getting to Brighton
and being too excited to see a body of water
Sitting in Garrity's lectures like...
Learning new drama at tea time
Taking a break from papers to get a pint at White Horse
Rolling up FDU sqaud deep to Pub Crawls
Posing on Instagram with your best buddie
supplies to make a Halloween costume
Knowing you have to be up at 8:30am for an art trip but deciding to drink anyway
When Baldwin calls someone out for not paying attention
Jumping into bed
like you didn't take two naps earlier that day
Starting to miss American food like...
November hits and everyone starts coming for each other
Getting through homesickness
Procrastinating all 10 INTER papers and you're basically living in the library
Walking out of your last exam like...
to go home knowing you may never see this beautiful place and incredible people
So shout out to Wroxton, the craziest, funnest, hardest, most rewarding and hands down best experience of my life.
