on the Arcadia London Midyear Program
"The London First-Year program was a wonderful eye-opening experience for me. To live and study in a majestic and vibrant city as London is already a treat in itself, but to have gone as a first-year is ever more special because of the vast, new interests I was able to explore. Looking back on my stay I feel I have become a more independent and self-sufficient person, and I have my London First-Year Program to thank for that." -Ben Lasserre, 2010 Program Participant
