 "[During the Maymester], I have learned a deeper appreciation for the British resilience during both World Wars and the "special relationship" both our countries have. More importantly [are] the personal interactions I had with not only my fellow students, but the lecturers and speakers as well. I have gained a network which would not be possible without this program." - Maymester 2017 student
