Dartmouth Oxford Exchange Student: Eric Jung '17

This past winter, Eric Jung ’17 participated in the exchange program sponsored by the Rockefeller Center to Keble College in Oxford University to continue his studies as a government major and public policy minor.

While at Keble, Eric really appreciated the depth of the tutorial system and the classes at Oxford. “They get straight to the application and analysis… I definitely learned a lot in a very short amount of time,” Eric says.  Eric especially enjoyed learning to think logically. “[Classes] definitely taught me new ways of thinking that I’ve never thought about before—like how to find flaws in an argument, or logical fallacies,” Eric says.

Outside of the classroom, Eric enjoyed Oxford’s housing system. “Oxford has these different colleges, and you’re kind of insulated in that college.” He especially loved the fact that each college at Oxford has its own library. During the term, Eric also took advantage of the opportunity to travel in Europe, flying to Sicily with the other Dartmouth students in the program.

Eric intends to take his LSAT this fall and head to law school next year. I’ve always known that I wanted to work for the government in some capacity,” says Eric. This past winter, he worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York and “working there confirmed that, personally, I would be best able to serve the government through law.”
