Best Semester: Oxford

Lissa Diaz

Through a partnership with the Coalition of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) called Best Semester, Bethel students have the opportunity to study abroad in a variety of locations around the globe!

Senior English and Philosophy double major Suzie Miley is spending this semester in England, studying at Oxford University. Here’s what she has to say about it:

“First impressions of Oxford: beautiful, vibrant and extremely aesthetic! I’m exhausted from all the cycling (my primary mode of transportation next to walking and busing), but I couldn’t be more pleased with my home for the next three-and-a-half months.

“There are many things I’m excited about for my Oxford semester, but there is one thing in particular: I am excited to live. It seems like a simple concept, but it has proven to be surprisingly liberating in the short time I have been here. I am excited to feel and be fully alive as I read, reflect, write and do all the other things I’ll discover in Oxford. I’m deeply grateful for this opportunity— thanks be to God!”
