?University of Cambridge is the second-oldest University in the English-speaking World. From this virtual tour I have learned that John Milton who is one of the most brilliant and influential English poet was one of the former student of Cambridge. Milton started to attend this College at the age of sixteen in 1625. Earlier he had learned at the St Paul's school. He really appreciated the atmosphere at that school and intellectual level of his friends. In contrast he felt very disappointed with university life, because of the fact that he couldn't find similar friend as he had in his earlier school. He was an outsider and that's why he got a nickname from his fellow undergraduates 'The Lady of Christ's College" but in reality girls were not allowed to study there. Even though he didn't have a good relationships with his friends, he felt that the tutors respected him. It was interesting to read about daily life at the university in 17th century. Students had to get up early because at 5 a.m. there was a service in Chapel. At this College the religious life was very important and that's why parents of John Milton sent him there. Lectures started at 7 o'clock after breakfast and finished at 10.30 a.m. There was a dinner at 11.00 and the second service at 6 p.m. just before the supper. In the mid-seventeenth century the free main subjects were taught at this University: logic, rhetoric and philosophy. In those days all students had to learn the same subjects, there wasn't any
