August 7th, 2014

Senior psychology major/French minor Alexandra Burris ’15 is among a small group of students awarded a de Jager prize for exceptional academic performance during her Scholars’ Semester in Oxford. Burris’ academic performance during the 2014 spring semester earned the de Jager—administered by Scholarship and Christianity in Oxford—which recognizes students who demonstrate outstanding application and ability of their educational experience.

“Since I had visiting student status, I could go pretty much anywhere in the university, including in the Bodleian Library, which is a really rare opportunity,” noted Burris about her Oxford experience. “I also got to study one-on-one with university professors, which was an incredible honor. The depth of insight they provided was amazing.”

Burris is Messiah’s fourth student to receive the de Jager prize since its founding in 2013. She joins alums Jessica Barnett ’13, Kaitlyn Kulp ’14 and Nate Van Wyck ’13.
