The annual British Universities Summer School (BUSS) Dinner is an anticipated event that never disappoints and this year's event was no exception. The evening, held on November 5 at Denver's University Club, began with a cocktail reception, providing a perfect time for members to mingle while chatting with the 2015 BUSS scholarship recipients and their guests. Following dinner, Chairperson of the BUSS Committee, Michael Thornton, introduced the honorees by reading excerpts from their scholarship applications. It was then time for the teachers to speak and their presentations were captivating.
Denver East High School's Aimee Arens and Todd Madison each shared highlights from their three weeks as students at Oxford University. The teachers drew the audience in with stories of their professors and coursework and photos of the grounds of Exeter College. The teachers' enthusiasm was evident as they spoke about their trip and the impact it had on them and, in turn, on their students.
The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.
