A New Semester and a New Site

Welcome to the new site for Harlac’s Tongue, Harlaxton College’s blog and news page. Alongside our sister site, The Lion’s Roar, which offers students’ perspectives on their time in the U.K., we’ll provide news and information about events of interest to past, present and future friends of the College.

It seems an appropriate time to start a new site with the Fall semester about to begin. Our visiting faculty, drawn from the University of Evansville and our twenty-one partner colleges, arrives tomorrow, and students will be collected from Heathrow on Friday. After a weekend of orientation sessions, receptions and a High Table dinner classes begin at 8.30 on Monday morning.

It’s always an exciting time of year. Some aspects are familiar, of course, but there are always changes to curricula, to events, to field trips, and the atmosphere is different every semester. No two semesters are the same and much of that is to do with the students who put their own stamp on Harlaxton and make it theirs.

We look forward to meeting you.

The grant was used to support the research of Nicholas Takebayashi, a junior professional chemistry major. Nick and his research advisor, Bryan Lynch, visited the Eli Lilly research labs in Indianapolis, and Nick presented his research project "Ion-pair States and Energy Transfer in Iodine" at the Lilly Undergraduate Research Symposium.
