The new London Business Semester program manager, Emerald, hosted two sessions at Maxwell’s in Covent Garden inviting our current London Business Semester students for Freakshakes. Students had the opportunity to share feedback on how the program is going and thoughts on changes to make in the future. Maxwell’s is famous for their freakshakes, an over-the-top monster dessert that started in Australia and is now becoming popular in major cities around the world.
Study abroad programs at St. Thomas are absolutely phenomenal and the Office of Study Abroad does a great job organizing, planning and ensuring the highest quality of education and experiences for our students. The Office of Study Abroad is already on top of their game and has sent Emerald, the new London Business Semester program manager, to London for the week to check in on our program and gain an inside prospective on the classes here in London, stop in on some of our Business 200 sites, and touch base with our program affiliate, the American Institute of Foreign Study. Next year’s brochures and marketing are in the making and filled lots of photos from our current group’s time and adventures all over London and other countries we have visited.
Gaining cultural education and experience is truly the chance of a lifetime. Over 50% of Tommies study abroad during their time at St. Thomas to incredible places all over the world through J-Term, semester, and summer programs. If you are interested in studying abroad in the future, check out the Office of Study Abroad website or sit in on an information session.
So what exactly is a Freakshake? Below are a couple of elaborate images to give you an idea of this phenomenon that is striking all over the United Kingdom. Maybe if we are lucky they will hit the U.S. in the near future!
