It was a sad good-bye early in the morning as our combo students said goodbye to Murray Edwards and the new friends they made and boarded the bus to London. Our 4-week students then eagerly awaited the arrival of the Session 2 students.
While some of the new students arrived by car, the majority of the students arrived on the bus from Heathrow late in the afternoon. After settling into their rooms a bit, the students enjoyed an outdoor pizza picnic on the lawn of Orchard Court with their RC groups. After the official Orientation Meeting, students participated in some ice breakers and learned a bit more about each other. After a tour of the Murray Edwards College campus, students went to their rooms for an early bedtime--after all, classes start in the morning!
