The Cambridge Experience 2002
Students in the UW Oshkosh program, receive full membership privileges of Hughes Hall--one of Cambridge University's newer colleges (1885) and the University's oldest graduate college. A close community in which the students and faculty dine together, Hughes Hall offers ample opportunities to meet and mix with its 45 Fellows and some 250 students. Hughes Hall offers many intellectual gatherings and social events, including its weekly Formal Hall--or "High Table"- where exceptional cuisine is enjoyed by all. The college buildings are quietly situated within easy reach of the City Centre and other University colleges. They overlook the University's cricket ground and are close to the Cambridge sports hall, the indoor swimming pool and Grafton Centre--a major shopping mall. The facilities include reading and sitting rooms, a lounge, modern classrooms, seminar rooms and a computer lab.
Weekly Excursions and Tours
Because of the ideal geographic location of Cambridge, weekly day trips to numerous sites are planned throughout the term as an integral part of the educational experience. We not only explore the Cambridge environs, but we also make several visits to nearby London where artistic and cultural opportunities abound. Not to mention FUN !! More extensive overnight trips allow for the enjoyment of the English countryside in addition to sites more distant from Cambridge, e.g. Stratford-upon-Avon, Bath, Oxford, Stonehenge, Bristol and Canterbury. All excursions and day trips have a direct relationship to the academic course of study.
Our departure date from Oshkosh was January 2nd, and our return date will be March 28th. The twelve-week course of study (term) is equivalent to the UW Oshkosh spring semester. Upon returning to Oshkosh, students would be still able to enroll in an interim 3-week course if desired.
