Korey Williams (’12), an English-writing and music double major, just learned that he was accepted into the IFSA-Butler Visiting Student program for fall 2010-11. Korey will study at Hertford, ranked sixth among the 36 colleges that constitute Oxford University. That’s what attracted Korey to Hertford—”its extremely high standards of scholastic achievement. What also attracted me to Hertford are its central location and the fact that it sits right across from the gorgeous Bodleian Library,” Korey said. “Hertford has a remarkable music scene and is known as one of the friendliest and most welcoming colleges at Oxford. I am most excited about everything.”
This makes the second English major accepted by a highly competitive program to study at Oxford next year . . . and coincidentally, the second Williams. Amanda Williams (’12) will study at Pembroke College.
Korey, who works in the English department as a Student Assistant, will be especially missed next fall. But he’ll be practically on the steps of one of the largest libraries at Oxford, one which includes an extensive collection of rare 17th-century manuscripts. Needless to say, every faculty member is jealous!
