My London blog

I started a second blog just for London, and originally I was just going to post all those posts over here also, but it makes more sense and will be easier to just send you all over there. It's :)

Getting ready for London

I've been shopping . . . and shopping . . . and shopping some more. And soon I'll have to start packing. Fun fun. Since I don't actually have much to say, I thought I'd give you all an overview of what exactly the London Honors Program is.

According to Houghton's website . . .
"Houghton College's London Honors Program combines an integrated curriculum with a European experience. This course of study in the spring semester for selected first-year students merges a traditional humanities curriculum with the opportunity to study in London. Combining history, literature, philosophy and the fine arts, this curriculum is a connected narrative of western ideas and culture from the ancient Greeks through the 20th century, affording students a thorough preparation for more advanced study."

In other words, lots of work but also lots of fun! A five-page paper due every week, three-hour lectures, tons of reading, museum visits, trips to the theater . . . For more info, visit And you'll certainly learn all the details once I get there!
