It's the second day and it's been so much fun!
We started this morning with the first day of classes: de Scelere, Terra terra remota mea, and Latina loquenda. Students were divided into three groups and visited each of those classes.
In the afternoon the students worked in the library. Afterwards the students met with the Japonese Academy and participated in a brief security meeting with RMC's chief Security Officer (Officer Mo!). Then the students got to hear all about two of our 3-week long projects -- the play and memoranda -- plus a scavenger hunt! We ended the evening with an AMAZING theme lecture and a trivia game.
The faculty can't wait to see what tomorrow has in store and I personally can't wait to start my art class!
