Oxford, Day 16: New College

Originally posted June 12, 2012, this blog post series is an undergraduate short-term study abroad trip in Oxford, UK in partnership with Salve Regina University and St. Clare’s Oxford. The blog post may have been edited for clarity and updated with relevant travel information and links.

The internet has been down at the dorm for over 24 hours–and is still down–which is why I am posting a little late.

Yesterday was a typical rainy day in England, but there was plenty to be done. In the morning, my roommate and I went to Costa. I like to think of Costa as an in-between of Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks. Although there are many locations, Costa’s atmosphere invites customers to read and study in the lounge.

The Literature of Oxford class went on a tour of New College. We saw the chapel, the Cloisters, and the courtyard.

Fun fact: Harry Potter’s Goblet of Fire was filmed in the New College’s cloisters. Afterward, a friend and I stopped at The Turf for tea before heading home.

At the end of the day, my roommate and I stayed in the dorm and read Persuasion.
