Harlaxton College was simply put, the best experience of my life and I couldn’t imagine what my life would be without it. It opened my eyes to the world, it forced me to make my own plans and be more independent, and most of all it provided me the chance to see friends that I would normally only see in the summer.
Margaret Thatcher left her mark on Baker University through her presence at the rededication ceremony of Osborne Chapel in 1996, a chapel where her father had preached in Sproxton, England.
Harlaxton is more than just travelling and having an experience abroad. This semester has put me through the toughest course work thus far in my college career. The first thing we were told was that this was described as “education on steroids,” and a truer statement was never spoken.

Today the Student Government Association of Harlaxton College found out exactly how to cause a mass uprising of the student body. It was pretty simple -- take away their meat.
Growing up, reading a book was my escape into a new world. My favorite books consisted of Harry Potter and Chronicles of Narnia; I eventually added The Lord of the Rings and sometimes even a few classics. Never had I ever imagined I would be walking the footsteps of my favorite authors and seeing my favorite stories come to life.
The experience at Harlaxton College is not marked by one single event and is not solely about travel or attending a university abroad. It is all of the little things in between that make the college worth attending.
Scotland is one of the most magnificent places that I have had a chance to visit thus far. From the moment the train pulled into the country, I knew that I would enjoy my time there.
This weekend may have been the busiest, craziest, weekend of my time in England.
We have talked about invasions in every one of our British studies classes, and today Girl Scout cookies invaded Harlaxton Manor. You could tell how much we miss America by the line that trailed back from that heavenly table.
