London Tube: thank goodness we packed light!

 

London Calling

So impressed with students on day one. In the last 24 hours, they’ve flown on two jets, ridden multiple Tubes, one bus and one airport tram. Those who rode their first airplanes did so like pro’s. London thus far has included a stroll through Covent Garden, a tour through the heart of London, a real pub meal – and that’s while everyone was extremely jet lagged! One of today’s learning moments: how to sleep while standing with eyes open.

Getting Ready to JET

At OKC airport:
Meghann: “Super excited. Can’t wait to be there.”
Isaac: “Made it past the scanning…now off to the flying.”
Adrianna: “Can’t wait to explore new places.”
Desiree: “You don’t have to call me Mrs. Hill!”

Getting Ready to JET

In just a few days, we will be embarking on the trip of a lifetime.  UCO Mass Communication students are traveling to London, Amsterdam and Brussels, leaving OKC on May 28th.  Along the way, we’ll encounter cultural, historic, journalistic experiences and more.  Follow our Journalism-Education-Travel (JET) blog to see these countries through our eyes.

Adrianna, Meghann and Isaac getting to know each other before the trip.
