I have entitled this blog, News From the Loo, as the manor in which St. Clare's has so graciously housed me, Hampden Manor, is home to the famous 'Vanbrugh Privy.' The 'Vanbrugh Privy' was built in 1715 and touted as the finest loo in all of England. It was built over a stream and boasts its own fireplace for those cold English mornings when duty calls.
My name is Patrick and I am a CCE student at Guilford College in Greensboro, NC. I have elected to do a semester abroad through St. Clare's College in Oxford, England. The purpose of this blog is to help organise my memories as well as provide some insight for other students contemplating studying abroad.
