I am happy to say that I enjoyed every aspect of my Yale in London experience, especially being able to study Shakespeare and experience productions of the plays in his hometown of Stratford-Upon-Avon. In addition I studied 17th Century British art and was able to view an incredible amount of original paintings in all of the museums. I lived with students from other programs in a wonderful house in the Bayswater area near Kensington Gardens. The location was allowed me the pleasure of running every day in Hyde Park. Like many students abroad I was able to travel to neighbouring countries on weekends and during breaks which allowed me to experience many different cultures in Europe. After the semester was over I stayed in London to work for a local restaurant and then continued traveling from Copenhagen to Italy.
I recommend the experience to anyone who is interested in history, art, and immersing themselves in another culture. The courses were challenging and the city of London provided a wonderful backdrop for exploring pubs, gardens, antique stores, and museums. Thank you Yale!
I am currently an Executive Producer for CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert which debuted on September 8, 2015. I am responsible for all aspects of production for the show on a daily basis.
