"Last summer I was given a once in a lifetime opportunity when I enrolled in the Harlow Summer Abroad program. I had always wanted to travel to Europe, but it wasn't until I arrived in England that I realized I had absolutely no idea what I was about to experience. Through the Harlow program I made friends with people I would otherwise have probably never met; some which have changed my perception on many things in life. I was able to travel to Holland, Ireland and Greece, in addtion to many trips around England and amazing theatre performances. As it would be nearly impossible to summarize my entire trip in one paragraph, I will simply conclude that the Harlow program is an experience that everyone should avail of if given the opportunity; it is something that you will cherish and rememeber." Valerie Hodge, A Summer of Theatre in London, 2010
"Before we left for Harlow, one of our profs said: this trip is going to change your life. I rolled my eyes at this dramatic claim. He was completely correct. And the extent to which the trip has changed my life has reached far beyond the months of the program itself. Not only did the travel, theatre, adventures, and the amazing courses I took explode my mind, but the friends that I made have become some of my very best. There is no way to overstate the impact of a Harlow semester on your life. Do it." Melanie Oates, A Summer of Theatre in London, 2010
"The summer I spent in Harlow is a summer I'll never forget for as long as I live. The theatre I saw, the places I travelled, and the people I met will stay with me for as long as I live. Harlow is such a beautiful town, rich in history and culture, right out of a fairytale! It was a pleasure to have the opportunity to spend five weeks there and I would go back in a heartbeat. Don't think twice about studying at the beautiful campus, it's an experience that every student should have! " Elizabeth Fahey, A Summer of Theatre in London, 2010
"I would rank going to Harlow as a pretty much essential part of going to MUN. It's an extremely unique atmosphere, which provides many opportunities. It's just a hop, skip and a jump away from London, and even the rest of Europe, so travelling is a breeze. But the Harlow area itself is great too, with no shortage of pubs, shopping, and other social opportunities. In short, Harlow's wicked. Do it up."
Phillip Howell, Literary London, 2008
"Studying in Harlow was a life-changing experience. It was incredible to study English Literature on location in its historical setting. Living in Harlow allowed for an authentic living-abroad experience, while also allowing for exciting travel opportunities in and around the UK and Europe. Our class got to know each other quite well, and I have maintained close relationships with my fellow Harlow adventurers. My semester in Harlow was an amazing summer, and I would do it again in a heartbeat."
Jillian Sexton, Literary London, 2008
"Having studied at Harlow twice, I can honestly say it has impacted my education in many ways. I feel like a more well-ronded and confident student, who has a lot of experience in my field. Being able to see the plays I have studied, explore the buildings where history lived and happened, and stand where great authors have stood and written, has been the absolute highlight of my university education. The Harlow experience offered ny Memorial is one of a kind - the ability to study Europe with Memorial's expertise and cost should not be missed! I loved it so much, I went back for a second time and I would certainly do it again."
Kathryn Curran, English Cultural Landscape 2007 & Literary London 2008
"Harlow was a life changing experience full of unforgetable memories and even more unforgettable people. Once you arrive, the realization that the rest of Europe is only one Ryanair flight away will make the, "gateway to Europe", more than just a catch phrase. I encourage everyone to take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity to travel Europe and experience what makes these countries so great."
Jeremy Burry, Political Science, 2006
"My time at Harlow Campus was an immensley rewarding experience. Teaching in another country gave me such a different perspective on the profession and practice. Pair this with the amazing cultural learning and travel opportunities, and I am left with a once in a lifetime experience that has enriched me as a student, as a teacher, and as an individual."
Megan Green, B Ed Primary/Elementary, 2005.
"Harlow was an incredible enriching experience. Not only did I get course credit and immesion in culture, I got to travel economically to other parts of Engalnd and Europe with some of my newfound friends."
Leslie Pierce, English Cultural Landscape, 2005.
"When you first hear about Harlow, you may hear people say it was a life changing experience for them, and after completing a program there, I can't agree more. Being able to read novels by some of the most famous British authors, and then travelling to where they wrote them, or where parts of the novels take place, really was a once in a lifetime experience. As well, the friendships you make are the ones you will treasure for a long, long time. My time in Harlow honestly did change my life, and I highly recommend it to anyone else."
Elizabeth Furey, Landscape and Literature, 2005
