Elizabethtown College held Afternoon Tea, a study abroad event where students could share their study abroad experience. Located in the Blue Bean Cafe, students were introduced to a bit of English culture.
Scones, biscuits, and tea covered a table for students and faculty to enjoy. English classics like clotted cream and jam were also among the choices.
This event allowed students to give their opinion on the impact of culture on them overseas.
“I think everyone should study abroad because its definitely an optimistic experience. Starting from getting to know a different culture to making yourself more independent,” said Afsarah Mirza.
The overall goal of this event was to try and showcase the experience to those who may be on the fence about going so far away.
Even those who hadn’t studied abroad in England specifically, gave their two cents on their time overseas.
“When I was New Zealand we took a trip, me and two friends took a trip to the north island and we traveled around for about a week, bouncing around from the hot spots and staying in hostels,” said Liz Driver.
The event was quite successful in its own right. It was complete with fellowship and curiosity from all those involved. The event itself even got me curious about British culture and what it had to offer.
“To drive home the importance of culture, more than three-hundred languages are spoken within England,” said Cam Wirth.
