This week the students are sharing their thoughts on the best thing yet about being in Canterbury.
After 7 weeks in Canterbury and 3 weeks into the fall term, Caz students took a few moments to compare their academic experience here so far to those in the US. The biggest difference they note - besides the difference in size between Caz and CCCU - is the emphasis on independent learning here in the UK.
What follows are some student comments on eating in the UK. The desserts are making quite an impression!
On a CCCU sponsored trip to Amherst Castle, Caz students Sarah Ferguson, Ellie Boone, Heather Ballantyne, and Travis Duffy learn how to fire a Napoleonic era cannon. Rebecca Reiss, Lara Sibi, and a group of other American students look on. Rochester Castle (pictured) and Fort Amherst were both built to defend the Medway River (pictured) and in so doing, much of southeast England, including the county of Kent where Canterbury is located. The castle has not been used for hundreds of years, but the fort was active as recently as World War II.
After visiting the remains of a Roman fort, we went to the coastal village of Broadstairs on a CCCU sponsored trip. Here is a pic of Caz students Casey Jones, Sonja Skalecki, Cassie Smock, Sarah Ferguson, Ashley Fikes, Ashley Thayer, and Travis Duffy at the fort followed by images of the coastline looking out into the English Channel and of the entire North American Study Abroad group - about 60 strong - on the beach.
