Rachel Syens '11

Major: International Studies

Program: York St. John University

Duration: Fall 2009

Favorite Course: The study of Shakespeare

Favorite Memory/ Experience: I loved the friends that I made at my University, both British and International. As far as my favorite memory, I would have to say the day trip we took to see Manchester United (the football club) play a game. I felt very immersed in the British culture, and it was just an amazing experience! I also loved Liverpool because of the Beatles Museum. I’ve grown up listening to them and it was great to see where they came from. I also loved visiting Stirling, Scotland. My friends and I were able to climb the William Wallace Monument on a clear, beautiful day and could see green hills and rivers on all sides. We also got a history lesson there, which I loved.
