The second week at Queen’s is now here, and as students started their Mondays they were a little tired after such a busy weekend. However, once breakfast had kicked in they were eager to begin their lessons as they set off bright and early.
Classes were active as usual, and as our students near the end of their programmes in Oxford their workload is now beginning to increase. In Philosophy classes, students were focusing on their final essays, as they looked into some of life’s most fundamental questions. In particular, many of the group have been intrigued by the borders of the human mind and have been discussing logic and ethics.
Elsewhere, students on Experimental Psychology were also discussing the human mind, however they were investigating the nature vs nurture debate, especially when it comes to the discussion of innate good and innate evil. Once lessons were complete for the day, the afternoon promised an array of exciting activities.
Some of the students chose to take a tour of New College, one of the largest colleges in the city. There was lots of excitement over this as several scenes from Harry Potter have been filmed in the cloisters here. The students enjoyed posing for photographs in the famous locations from the movie!
Later at college the cohort then enjoyed cake decorating, a sweet way to enter the week, which also presented a creative opportunity for everyone to take their minds of the looming deadlines. Following this, there were options of several sporty activities including; zumba, football at university parks and a real tennis lesson to let off some steam.
