Ana Vuko- St. Clare's & Oxford
Name: Ana Vuko
Major: History, Theatre Arts Minor
Study Abroad Program: Blackfriars Scholar Program at Oxford University and St. Clare's, Oxford Liberal Arts Program in the Spring of 2012.
International Experience: I studied and lived in Oxford, England for a semester. I had the honor of one of two students from USD to partake in the Blackfriars Scholar program at the Blackfriars Permanent Academic Hall at Oxford University.
Why I wanted to be a peer advisor in the Study Abroad Office: My decision to go abroad was spare of the moment, but it could not have been a better choice for me. Not only does studying abroad provide chances to meet people from around the world, but it presents that opportunity to learn more about yourself. A former participant can best articulate what makes the Blackfriars program special and I wanted to get the chance to do this. I wanted to get the chance to encourage other academically curious students to partake in this program that has done so much for me as a person and student.

conversations I had with my professors and I still keep in touch with some of
