Review

As an almost senior in high school, the thought of leaving my home and everything I have ever known behind scared me. This is the reason I chose to attend the pre-college program at Oxford University, I wanted to be prepared for the day when I would have to leave my home and start fresh. Summerfuel's fantastic program offered me endless opportunities to live the life a typical university student would.

In addition to the phenomenal and supportive staff, I met people from all around the world who literally changed the way I viewed the world. I met people from Russia, Colombia, and so many other nations. I come from small town New Jersey, so meeting people who came from such different backgrounds not only helped me expand my knowledge of the world but also helped open my mind to making friends who were vastly different from myself. My most cherished memory from my summer is spending time with my two best friends in the program. Both of them are incredibly different from myself, but that is exactly what I love about them. Befriending them and having them become like family to me has taught me that no matter how different someone is from myself, I should never doubt the possibility of a connection. I still FaceTime those two and so many others from the program.

In addition to the social aspect of the program, I also was able to take invigorating classes that actually helped me decide what major I wanted to pursue while at university! I also got to experience the English culture at one of the best universities in the world, really there is nothing more special!

The program is perfectly designed to allow students to have the freedom of a college student but also to feel the comfort and security that we are all familiar with at home!

I learned how to make friends and live apart from my family, which has ultimately made me feel like I am ready to take on the next four years of my life!

Choose Summerfuel and you will have the summer experience of a lifetime!
