Camille Gregory  – We spent plenty of late nights preparing for seminars. We balanced that with pickup games of soccer, Frisbee in the rain, and adventures in flower fields at the University Parks. Oxford itself is a great place to explore. Everywhere you turn, the city mixes new with old. One of my favorite days was spent wandering through the quads of as many colleges as possible and attending an evensong service at Queens College. The exceptional architecture and gardening in this city made it quite magical. Plus, it was fun to walk through the colleges and go the Bodelian Library as actual students of the university! Several of us had a marvelous weekend in Dublin. After reading so much Joyce, it was a great pleasure to explore the city central to all of his literature.

Hammad Khalid – Engaging in stimulating seminar and tutorial discussions with Dr. Pickard and classmates challenged me to think critically and question why I hold the beliefs and values that I do. Outside of class, taking in the unique sights and sounds of Oxford – punting on the Cherwell River, exploring the Bodleian Library, attending Open Mic Night at the Catweazle Club – made for some truly surreal experiences. Visiting Amsterdam and Paris also proved to be highlights of the trip. However, the greatest part of the Maymester was having the opportunity to make all of these memories with some of my closest friends in the Fellowship and creating lifetime bonds in the process.
