Finally!!!! Now Which Class Should I Take???

Oxford University has a wonderful program each summer for anyone who lives outside of Great Britain.  For the month of July they open the campus of Christ Church College, one of Oxford's oldest college's, for Angolphiles, knowledge seekers and anyone who wants to have a great experience, to come and take a class, live in the dorms and pretend you are really a studuent there. 


My friend Kim and I have gone twice (we try to go every 3 years), and each time we have a great experience.  The classes Kim has taken in the past are a creative writing, and a Jane Austen class.  My interests are more in history and I have taken the War of the Roses, and Life in Roman Britain classes. 


Dorms at Christ Church College

Two and a half years ago when we were there, England was experienceing a MAJOR flood and the Thames had over flowed and come almost up to our dorm building (our room was the fruthest right gable on the top floor). 

Great Hall dining room

We eat all our meals in the Great Hall together or you can choose to eat off campus.  The price of the week includes rooms, food, class and excursions for your class.  They also offer additional excursions that you can sign up for and pay if you so choose.

Christ Church College is so beautiful and it is such a wonderful experience to be able to hae "free reign" of the campus.  We even got a key to the front gate!  The teachers have been outstanding and very knowledgeable in their fields. 


Oxford

Well, they have finally put up the schedule for next summer's courses, and as usual, there are at least 3-4 classes in each session that I want to take!  Unfortunately, there is no CS Lewis class, but here are a few that I am interested in:  Castles in Britain, Jewish Life in Medieval England, Elizabeth I, The Romance of the Railways, King Alfred and the Vikings, Shakespeare in Oxford, Alice's Adventures in Oxford, and many more! 
If you love to travel, learn, want to really feel like you belong to a place, and meet friends from all over the world, I highly recommend you think about checking out this program.  Here is a link to their site:
