Cultural Differences


Now that all the undergraduates have gone home or graduated, the university is much quieter. We do have events here, though - so far this year I've seen basketball players, French schoolchildren, nurses, ... All these events are organised by Events Essex.

Normally, Events Essex operates out of the lecture theatre block, but this year there was some reason they couldn't do that. The School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering generously offered to help out by giving Events Essex some space on Square 2 just off the entrance to our part of the building.

I don't know how many people work in Events Essex, but I'd guess at maybe 10 or 15. Every time I go in and out, there are people near the entrance wearing their light blue Events Essex uniforms. These people are invariably smoking.

It's only when I'm exposed to the normal lifestyles of other people that I appreciate the fact that hardly any CSEE undergraduates smoke.
