Seven Lewis University students from courses in history and literature traveled across the pond to London May 19-28 as part of the Lewis University Travel Study program.

While in London, the group of students visited Westminster Abbey, the Churchill War Rooms, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Dickens Museum, along with other sites in the area. They attended a performance at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre as well.

Highlights of the trip included visits to the Museum of London, British Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Buckingham Palace and Hampton Court Palace.

The students who attended the trip included Madison Dewey, Ra’Naa Iqbal, Samantha Kowalczyk, Joseph McDermott, Ziarra Miller, Sita Patel, and Cody Phillips.

The students were enrolled in the courses Culture and Civilization, The British Empire or British Literature: 1800 to the Present. Dr. Eileen McMahon, chair and professor of History, and Dr. Jamil Mustafa, chair and professor of English Studies taught the courses and led the trip.
