The Advocate

At what college could I walk into a quad bordered on one side by the immense, ornate, college chapel and on the other by the college bar? In this college town, don’t even think about walking on the grass, but on Saturday night, come enjoy a beer festival at the Town Hall!

Welcome to Oxford, land of contradictions, home of bi-weekly formal dinners and punting (a boating activity in which you propel yourself with a long stick), where one college has a deer park, another a cathedral, and it is not uncommon to see people walking around in flowing black robes. Oxford, or, more specifically, Exeter College, is my home for the next year, as I have chosen to study abroad with the Williams-Exeter Programme at Oxford.
