It means ignoring people on the tube, learning the Village Café chef name, getting on the Northern Line and going to Oxford Circus without getting lost, and running into people you met last week at the pub.

Odd People and Odd Sights

In England by Eller Student

Jack Farnstrom Major: Business Econ Expected Graduation: 2017      Camden Town is very different than anything I have really experienced. Being from the Berkeley area I’m pretty used to seeing odd people and odd sights. However Camden takes it to the next level.

The English Accent

In England by Eller Student

Kyle Thomas Major: Pre-Business Graduation: 2018      After being here for nearly 2 months, I already feel a sense of belonging.

For example, I have memorized tube …
