Today (May 31) was a simple but enriching day! We went to the Royal Agricultural University, the oldest agriculture school in the U.K. Stephen Chad was our kind host for the day. We started off with him giving us a brief overview of the university and their various degree programs, then later he took us on a campus tour. You can see various pictures from the campus tour below.
One of their beautiful buildings in campus.
Their “silent” library with lots of very old books.
An outside picture of some of their “dorms”.
I found this common area very neat. I could picture it filled with people laughing. There was a bar on the other side of it and Mr. Chad said students often come and enjoy themselves here.
Peter Morris was another gentleman who spoke to us today regarding agriculture in the media. I think we all really enjoyed what this man had to say and the perspective he brought to the table. He had worked as an attorney, a reporter and now an educator and brought quite the insight on agriculture. He discussed media in many different ways and I found him very knowledgeable and even a bit inspiring. Our overall experience at the Royal Agricultural University was a great one and I personally enjoyed our time there.
We ended the night singing happy birthday to Will, one of the Arkansas students. He can proudly say he is now two decades old. Happy Birthday Will!
