Well, I didn't think it was right that New should be missing out on the fun Call us what you will (best one I've heard is Newdists) but we are clearly the best college. So... here's a thread entirely devoted to anyone who's interested/bored really.
It would be helpful if all the Newdists (yeh, I'm gonna go with that for now) on TSR could post here so we could get a list going.
My completely honest opinion... Hmm... Hard for a political type like me :P
Being serious, New is probably my second favourite college from what I've seen of it, however I prefer Magdalen's architecture, layout deer park e.t.c. To make a really decent comparison I would probably have to virtually live in New for a while though as there are all sorts of things you only see in the college you are actually a member of.
Grads and 4th year undergrads are housed together. The two main sites are:
1. The Sacher building
a 60s building in college which was refurbished after a fire and is therefore quite nice
also houses the MCR, which has a TV, a bar and a tendency to supply free food (e.g. free brunch on Sunday morning, free tea and cakes on Saturday afternoon)
has a computer room
2. Weston Buildings
by the college sports ground (a few minutes' walk from the main college site)
you live in really nice houses in small groups; better than the Sacher building
Then there are a couple of other places they might put you, but I can't remember the details. I think there are a couple of houses somewhere, which I've heard is preferable to being in Sacher or Weston. Basically, you get looked after quite well, because all the accommodation is pretty good and none is far away. And the MCR is definitely one of the best in Oxford, possibly the best.
