“Initially, I felt a bit skeptical living with a family of complete strangers, rather than in a dorm with other classmates, but my concerns quickly subsided when I met my homestay family. They ensured that throughout the duration of my stay with them that I felt comfortable and a part of the family." Brian Callender
“Traveling around England and the rest of Europe helped me become more independent and expanded my horizons. From Scotland to Spain to France, I made new friends all around the world and saw some wonderful sight." Rotem Hinkis
“The classes were what had originally sparked my interest in the study abroad to Oxford program. To be in the places you are studying, where the plays were written, or see the art you went over in class is the most amazing way to learn." Candis Osuna
“The program was incredible. No matter who you are, what you do, or where you come from, this trip will change you." Clayton Colaw
“The Saddleback study abroad program at Oxford really helped me to grow more than just academically. I loved living in England and learning about Oxford as well as other significant cities, and I also had the chance to do quite a bit of traveling. Being out on my own and figuring out how to get by in a foreign country helped me grow not only in my maturity level but also to grow as a person." Alex Simpson
