An introduction to England's ancient university through the experience of a
newly arrived Rhodes scholar from Calgary, Alberta. A little puzzled at first
by traditional manners of behaviour and speech, the Canadian undergraduate
soon learns to accept and enjoy the peculiarities of his new environment. With
him we explore the famous buildings of the university and find that, while
customs differ, collegiate high spirits and fun are as common to Oxford as
they are to newer centres of learning.
