The past two days have been a whirlwind of fun and excitement — so much so, that I am making up for lost time by combining days 5 and 6 in this blog. On Saturday, we had the opportunity to hear from a recent alum about her experience working for the Civil Service in England. Her work regulating nuclear threat reporting was extremely pertinent to recent events and was really interesting. The bulk of the day, however, was spent meeting with President Weinberg and many other Denison alums from around Europe in a networking event. From conversing with a Lord about biosimilar regulation by the United Nations to discussing the value of behavioral economics in predictive models for investments, I know I personally learned a lot from the event.
Saturday night and Sunday were a time to relax and enjoy the city at our leisure. This looked different for everyone, but I am including a few pictures below to illustrate some of the fun we had. I enjoyed tea, a walk in Hyde Park, and touring the Wallace Collection art gallery. Others enjoyed Sky Garden, the Tower of London museum, shopping, and of course we all enjoyed eating good food.
Tomorrow is our last day of meetings and business visits. I am sad to see our time in London drawing to an end, but the trip has made me more excited to jump back into the classroom and a routine back at Denison in a week!
