Two student ambassadors then led an extensive campus tour which included Trent Building, Dept of Education, Social Sciences, Science buildings, Portland Building (Student Union), a hall of residence and the main Hallward Library.
We ended up at the Lakeside Arts Centre where we had half an hour to view the impressive Lowry exhibition which had conveniently just opened that day.

Guy Fawkes Bonfire, a set on Flickr.
Students and faculty gathered together to celebrate Guy Fawkes Bonfire Night. The fire chased away the rain for us and the hot chocolate kept everyone warm! Students made an amazing effigy of Guy Fawkes to throw onto the fire - looked just like him!
British Empire Afternoon Tea, a set on Flickr.
In keeping with British tradition we had afternoon tea in the splendour of the Great Hall. Itsy, bitsy cakes and sandwiches, proper tea cups and saucers, and of course a certain degree of decorum was adopted throughout the afternoon – very nice.
