Students enjoyed their first day of classes yesterday, as our budding professionals got to grips with the fundamentals of their chosen disciplines. For instance, over in Introduction to Engineering, students set about designing and executing an egg-drop, using their engineering expertise to secure a soft landing.
In the afternoon, students took to the streets of Oxford, where they visited such sights as Trinity College, the Bodleian library and the University Church. They were wowed not only by the imposing structures —our Introduction to Architecture students mused over crenellations and Corinthian columns— but also by the less visible wonders within the city. Here’s one for you: the Bodleian Library houses over 120 miles of bookshelves, which is approximately the distance from Oxford to London and back again!
Tired after the day’s activities but not defeated, students competed in a quiz back at LMH. Alongside more traditional general knowledge, students were asked to identify their counsellors from their baby pictures: the aptly named “Whizzes of the Quizzes” stormed to victory.
