university evansville 300EVANSVILLE, IN (01/08/14)- University of Evansville student Kaylynn Carver of Slaughters, KY, will spend the Spring 2014 semester studying abroad at Harlaxton College, UE's British campus near Grantham, England.

Carver, who is majoring in Spanish, is among 172 students who begin classes Monday, January 13 at Harlaxton, housed in a 120-room Victorian manor in the East Midlands countryside.

"For more than 40 years, studying at Harlaxton College has been a definitive part of the University of Evansville experience. Where else can students live and study in a grand manor house, travel throughout the United Kingdom and Europe on weekends, and form lasting ties with local residents?" said Earl Kirk, UE director of study abroad. "We're thrilled to provide this transformational educational experience for students such as Kaylynn Carver, and we wish all of the Spring 2014 Harlaxton students a semester of learning, discovery, and growth."

The Harlaxton curriculum features a core course, The British Experience, which offers an interdisciplinary introduction to British life and culture. Literature, art history, economics, history, and political science are part of the course, which combines lectures, seminars, and field trips to locations such as Lincoln and London. In addition to The British Experience, students enroll in a range of classes in the liberal arts and pre-professional studies. Harlaxton College's British faculty is supplemented by visiting faculty members from American institutions.

Optional weekend trips to destinations such as London, Paris, Ireland, Wales, and the Lake District in northern England provide students with opportunities to engage the culture in Britain and beyond. While at Harlaxton, students may participate in the popular Meet-a-Family program, athletics, and other activities.

The University of Evansville is a private, liberal arts-based university with a full-time undergraduate enrollment of approximately 2,400. UE's diverse student body represents 42 states and 46 countries. U.S. News & World Report recognizes UE as a top 10 master's-granting university in the Midwest, and third in the region for "Great Schools, Great Prices."
