Hello Oxfordians! I'm very pleased to see that Julie has set everything up so nicely & that we are ready to inaugurate the virtual side of Honors Oxford Study Abroad Program.
I thought that I might kick off the first round of posts. It seems to me that the ideal first topic would be -- Your Expectations Concerning Oxford. What do you think it's going to be like? What are you looking forward to? What are you curious about? What do you think it will be like living in the middle of a university that predates the Columbus's arrival in North America?
Me, I'm mostly thinking about the impending Royal Wedding at the moment. Completely distracted by all the spectacle and glitz. But I had dim sum on Sunday with a couple Oxford professors who were in town for the Shakespeare Association of America annual conference, and their perfect table manners and occasional jokes in medieval Latin reminded me just how much I enjoyed my time at Magdalen College. I'm thrilled to have this chance to return & share the magic of the place with y'all.
