An Oxford Occasion

Today we are spotlighting one of our beautiful active members, Kelly O’Connor. She is a junior English major at The University of Texas and a Fall ‘12 Sweetie. This summer, Kelly spent her time studying abroad at the University of Oxford with other students from UT. The program allowed her to take one upper-division English course, and she chose a class on Jane Austen, which she loved.

While at Oxford, she studied specifically in Wadham College. She stayed in a dorm there with other students from UT in her program. She knew she wanted to study abroad because of her love for travel and learning, as well as her desire to meet new people and build her resume.  

As happy as can be in front of the university!

Kelly most enjoyed her visits to London, Paris and Dublin. She visited the Harry Potter Studios in London and sipped on wine under the Eiffel Tower at night in Paris. In Ireland she hiked on coastal cliffs, and enjoyed taking in the green scenery that surrounded her.

She describes studying abroad as an extremely rewarding experience, as she learned so much about herself, while also having a ton of fun. We are so proud to have members like Kelly in our organization, that go above and beyond to achieve their dreams. We know that Kelly will excel at whatever she chooses to do in the future, and look forward to watching her grow as she finishes out her college experience at UT. 

Until our next spotlight,

Texas Sweethearts
