English major

from Glen Allen, Virginia


"The Virginia Program at Oxford taught me how to think on my feet, both in and out of the classroom. The work is hard, but the experience is unforgettable."

Max Dash '18 spent 6 weeks at the Virginia Program at Oxford, a Hampden-Sydney sponsored, interdisciplinary summer school program based in St. Anne's College, Oxford University. The six-week program examines the literature, history and society of late-16th and early-17th century England.

With only an iphone, he captured his favorite locations:

The Radcliffe Camera, part of the historic Bodleian Library which VPO students have special access to during their six weeks
