London Study Abroad 50th Anniversary Celebration

As we celebrate this magnificent 50th anniversary of the London Study Abroad Program, we see it is much more than a study abroad experience. Over the years, the semester-long program has provided nearly 800 students and faculty the exposure to history, firms, culture, international design and a way of life and perspective very different than what they’ve known. Few have left this program without it significantly changing and forever shaping their world.

To commemorate this momentous occasion, please join us in London with your fellow travelers as we celebrate this storied program with tours, dinner and a glimpse at our program today. We have intentionally left this schedule flexible to allow for self-guided tours down memory lane with friends and family. See below for tentative agenda and registration.

Registration Open

So we may finalize plans for dinner and tours, please click to register by February 15th!
