Good morning on a bright and sunny (but cold) day at Harlaxton.

3:00 - We're coming to get you! Dr Taylor, Dr Bujak and Heather Elam will be your shepherds this morning.

6:00 - We are aware of a few delayed flights but most should still arrive in time for the official pickup.

9:00 - The Spring 2012 arrivals have begun! So far we have had no major problems at Heathrow airport and the first and second coaches (buses) of 48 students left at 7:10 and 7:50 and should arrive at Harlaxton at about 10:00 and 10:40 respectively.

9:30 - The third coach (bus) has just left Heathrow and should arrive at Harlaxton at about 12:30.

10:10 - The first coach (bus) has arrived and the students ( I swear they are getting younger every year!) have had a brief introduction from Dr Kingsley before lunch and settling in. The second coach is due at 10:45.

  1. I am keeping tabs on the events at my Harlaxton Home and, I am admittedly just a little bit jealous that I can't be there to enjoy, once again, the camaraderie that I experienced during Fall Semester.

    My best wishes to all those students and faculty who will now enjoy all that Harlaxton and England - and all of Europe - has to offer.

    What an education I received, one for which I will be forever grateful. I am, indeed, privileged to have had that opportunity for I am forever changed as a result of it.
