King takes his learning abroad to Scotland field school

Looking to take your learning to a whole new country? Consider going on one of our fields schools next spring!

When King Albaña attended the Douglas College Scotland field school, in Edinburgh, he discovered that sometimes the best places to learn are outside the classroom. He studied geography on top of the majestic summit of Arthur’s Seat, learned about performing and fine arts through visits to theatres, museums, galleries and castles, and studied creative writing in the city where J.K. Rowling wrote her Harry Potter series. He even visited the café where Rowling first began writing the novels.

“The trip was an awe-inspiring experience that had a motivational effect on my life,” King says. “It changed my perspective of education for the better, broadened my horizons both academically and culturally, and taught me invaluable lessons that I could never get from a textbook.”
