About our writer

Ryta is a 3rd year medical student at Downing College and a summer mentor at Immerse Education 2016.

Day 3 of Immerse Education was met with a chilly start, with participants glad to settle into their tutorials indoors. The day warmed up enough to allow us to enjoy the sports afternoon. Participants experienced the stark contrast between the fast-paced, dynamic nature of Ultimate Frisbee and the more calm and measured approach to croquet, which we played in the beautiful fellows’ garden of Queens’ College.

A presentation on university applications by Hazel and Mark was particularly well-received, with participants gaining a better understanding of the process ahead of them. Today also saw the spontaneous birth of the ‘Banter Board’, featuring quotes overheard at Immerse Education, as well as mentor memes!
