So it begins…

I made it!  I have definitely arrived in one of the most beautiful cities on earth.  Oxford is shaping up to be even more than I ever could have imagined, and University College, though small, is quite comfortable and in a superb location for access to the rest of the city.

Today was the first day of classes, so I finally have a better understanding of what I will be dealing with.  My standard SMU class (European Diplomacy from Napoleon to the EU) meets four days per week for two and a half hours.  My Oxford tutorial, on the other hand, meets only twice per week—once as a whole group and once in teams of three—for an hour.  Both my SMU professor and my Oxford tutor seem very interesting and engaging.  I’m sure I will pull a few quotes from the latter before the trip is over!

Stay tuned for my first round of photos!  They should be up shortly.
