As temperatures soared in Oxford today, our students reached new heights in their Major classes. Our Business and Finance class started work on their investment portfolios and our Engineering class got to grips with the mechanics of designing their very own robots. Our Drama students continued to rehearse their roles for the upcoming performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, whilst our Literature and the Fantastic class ventured to Port Meadow to walk along the river where Lewis Carroll first told the story of Alice in Wonderland!
The centrepiece of today was the Major Mixer: an opportunity for our students to try different majors for a day. Reviews were stupendous – everyone loved it! Students doing Genetics and Biotechnology had the opportunity to extract DNA from kiwi fruit whilst students trying out Medical Science were given a crash course in CPR; those participating in the International Relations mixer received an introduction to issues affecting the international order today, and students participating in the Architecture mixer did perspective drawings of the magnificent Christ Church Cathedral.
Well done to everyone for their hard work today!
