Program Reviews:
Taylor Marie McWhorter, Spring 2017 Participant
I felt incredibly safe walking to and from campus or even to and from downtown (which was a 30-minute walk). There were students and some families always around. Bus fare to downtown, the grocery stores, and back to the dorm was 2.50 GBP (British pound) unlimited all day.

Taylor Marie McWhorter, Spring 2017 Participant
I felt very safe in my dorm, Benyon Hall. There was a key to get in my building, a key to get on my floor, and another key to get in my room. However, I did not like how thin the walls were. I had a flatmate who was exceptionally loud at all times of the day and night. Also, the building my classes were located in was a 30-minute walk from my dorm. I got used to it, but it definitely was a little workout each day. Dress warmly in the winter! On the plus side, there was a beautiful pond in the middle of Benyon Hall; my friends and I would always go sit out by it, to study or simply hang out.

"The University of Reading became my second home quickly and I will cherish those memories for the rest of my life. More than the education, the experiences and independence I gained have helped me grow as a person."
