Birmingham-Southern College students participating in British Studies at Oxford summer program

BIRMINGHAM, Ala.—Four Birmingham-Southern College students are spending six weeks this summer in England studying for academic credit and becoming immersed in the culture of the country and of Europe.

Students participating in the British Studies at Oxford summer program live and dine in the 17th century buildings of St. John’s College, a constituent college of Oxford University, and attend lectures and seminars covering the arts, history, literature, and philosophy of a distinguished age of Britain’s past. In addition, the students are given the opportunity to travel throughout England and Europe.

Birmingham-Southern students participating in British Studies at Oxford this summer include:

  • Fairfax Davis, a junior psychology major from Columbus, Miss., and the daughter of Eulalie and John Davis.
  • Emily Roebuck, a senior English major from Mountain Brook and the daughter of Kathy and Sidney Roebuck.
  • Megan Snider, a senior history major from Tuscaloosa and the daughter of Teresa and Barry Snider.
  • Sarah Watts, a senior Religion major from Huntsville and the daughter of Wimberly and John Watts.

All four students received scholarships from Birmingham-Southern and matching funds from the British Studies at Oxford program to help fund their experiences.
