Big grounds, small student body, lovely lawns, good food - there are a lot of pleasantries written about this place. Lets cut the crap, sometimes it is true but in no way defines what the college is about. You can be anyone, someone, no one, straight, arty, sciency, queer, weird, fabulous, and feel totally at home. Meanwhile, all that conservative, closed snobby shiz is a load of wank.

It's a great college, food is amazing (for some diners you have to sign up pretty fast because otherwise all the space will be taken up), large student accommodation although generally not ensuite. There are all types of people around and with pretty much anything there are people who make their life out of it (work, sports and going out alike) and people who like to be a bit more relaxed. As it is a pretty small college all the sports always want more people meaning that if you go here, you can get a taste of everything but apart from passing wont be forced anything.

Good music, sports and food, very attractive and one of the older colleges. Some funding is available to students, and the librarian is fab at getting books. Free printing.

To be honest, the reputation for rah's and the stuck up holds true, and the college is less inclusive than most. No black students, and unfortunately some homophobia and sexism which isn't dealt with well. Also more cliques than in other colleges, partly because it is smaller. Party atmosphere holds strong, with more drinking than at other colleges.

Good place to be, but consider other places if you want a light-hearted and less pressurised atmosphere.
