British Library 16 June
Students at the British Library

As you can see, a deluge of rain hit the morning of our research at the British Library! Students maintained a good attitude in spite of getting soaked enroute. They registered as researchers and demonstrated to the British Library staff they were well prepared for their research that day. The library staff complimented the students on their preparation and professional attitude toward their work that day--praise not often given to undergraduate students! Well done!

Here are the WWII topics of the students’ research for AL 400, an upper level research course within our study abroad curriculum.  This course is for students who have already completed their two Integrated Arts and Humanities courses on campus.  All of the topics have some connections to the places where we will study after we leave London.  Their papers will be due when the program ends in Berlin on 7 July 2011.
