I loved being a Pembroke-Kings student at Cambridge University. Cambridge is a beautiful place and the program has a very strong "work hard- play hard" atmosphere. While studying in the University I felt a strong sense of the historical atmosphere and respect for learning that it allowed me to really focus concentrate on my academics. At the same time, the program has so many fun activities and trips that I was always motivated to finish my work so I could join in. I made so many friends from all over the world and loved traveling with them on weekends or dining with them at formal halls. While on PKP I was able to network and learn about tips on how to apply for many prestigious graduate study opportunities. One of my favorite memories was meeting a member of the Fulbright Program's Board of Directors while sitting down to breakfast one morning. He and others were able to help give me advice on my future academic goals. Additionally, I was able to build my connection to Cambridge through PKP's supervision option. My connection to Cambridge is something that does not end once the programme is over. Being connected to such a prestigious university comes with an incredible alumni network that PKP students can take advantage of during and after the program. I am now in the process of applying for Fulbright, Gates, and Marshall scholarships. For those students looking to boost their resume in an international setting, PKP is definitely a fun program that provides an opportunity of a lifetime.

I had an amazing time, better than I thought I would. At first I was excited, nervous and a little intimidated. I was excited for the opportunity to study at Cambridge, be abroad on my own and make new friends. Intimidation came from the high caliber of students attending from elite schools. These students unknowingly made me realize my own hidden abilities. I often found my self in deep discussions about, politics, religion, education and my plans for the future. I developed life long friendships with students from all over the world and am forever grateful. Not only did I become more knowledgeable about others, cultures, religions, and languages, most importantly I learned a lot about my self. PKP provided several academic, sports and historic activities, which I attended to enhance my experience and it did! I played, squash, cricket, croquet and went punting for the first time. I discovered I am quite good at tennis. Though all of these activities were fun the equally important aspect of PKP were the courses. I took two classes and my third was a supervision. Both courses were taught by experts in their fields who were insanely passionate about their fields this of course made for the lectures and seminars to be interactive. From my academic work in PKP I will submit a few of my short research papers to journals and present my supervision paper at a conference. I was also invited by my supervision professor to visit her in New York in march while she is working at the UN and doing a fellowship at Harvard. This program has opened my eyes to several career and educational opportunities.

My name is Nonnie Suso (Integrated Studies - Philosophy/English), and when I heard that I had an opportunity to take courses at the University of Cambridge during my undergraduate career, I decided to jump on it. It was a rocky road between the day I applied and the first days of the programme, but in the end I had no regrets. I took three philosophy courses (since that's what I study), and the formatting was fascinating (12 lectures and 8 seminars). It was extremely condensed, with a lot of information in a very short time, and yet it didn't feel too overwhelming. I had many opportunities to travel around Cambridge and the U.K. Many of the museums, if not most, are free of charge, so I went to as many as I could. When I got into Cambridge, I felt as if I were transported in time--except for the fact that there were vehicles and people with contemporary clothing. It's a beautiful city and one worth going to. I would recommend this programme to every student that would enjoy studying abroad. I am grateful for all the support and encouragement that I got from my mentors at the Integrated Studies department and from my family.
