Reagan Scott, a junior management major from Lincoln, Nebraska, will study abroad with the Nebraska at Oxford program from July 15 to August 11. The most popular study abroad program offered by the university, Nebraska at Oxford celebrates its 30th anniversary this summer. In her four-weeks in England, she will take two courses concerning the British political and international economic policy. Scott chose to study abroad at Oxford because she has always had an affinity for British culture and wanted to have the experience of studying at the world’s oldest English-speaking university. She said, “I am really looking forward to immersing myself into everyday life at Oxford. It’s crazy to think I will actually be living in another country for four weeks and I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me there!” She also plans on exploring Galway, Ireland, and London after her program concludes.
