Oxford's Intergration into the Public

"I have to admit that the word "Oxford" conjured specific and memorable images in my mind (these include a spacious, vast open field containing manicured lawns stretching throughout the college in the countryside away from the bustling city and an iconic image of Victorian buildings barring the outside world from entering a private world filled with tradition), but now, having actually visited, what clings most to my imagination is the approach on how to enter Oxford, with a specific criteria on choosing a singular area of study before entering college and the approach of studying with no strict classes, but rather an independent study experience with guidance from a professor or faculty member and also the close proximity with the public space, loosing the alluring appeal of a prestigious, private reputation."
