ORA’s Imperial College students have had a studious start to Week Two, after their enriching weekend of exploring and debate.
Monday saw many of them skip playing games in order to get ahead on their work, an attitude which impressed the ORA staff no end.
Their exemplary work ethic continued on Tuesday as they tackled their morning lessons. In particular, the Business and Enterprise students worked on their presentation skills and finalised their business plans ahead of their ‘pitches’.
All their work wasn’t in vein, as they were treated with an evening extravaganza, starting with a trip off campus to enjoy a delicious meal in the city.
The students also enjoyed some of the capital’s bubble artists and intriguing sculptures. London is a city balanced between the historic and the cutting edge, and few cities in the world could mix street performers with classical architecture so beautifully.
To reinforce this exquisite blend between theatre and stunning buildings, the students were whisked off to London’s world-famous West End to choose from a trio of shows. One of the productions on offer was the much-acclaimed ‘Lion King’ at the Lyceum Theatre, with the others being ‘Wicked’ at the Apollo Victoria and ‘The Comedy About a Bank Robbery’ at the Criterion Theatre.
The shows went down a storm, with the students all relishing the opportunity to experience one of London’s most popular attractions. The students returned to campus tired, ready to head to bed and gear up for a fantastic end to the week.
