    Nowhere, not even Oxbridge can beat the nerdiness of UCL. Seriously they are like rats in their computer cluster dungeons. I have never seen people looking so nerdy in my life. I remember on open day, there was this guy with a big jewfro, round glasses, thick vermillion sweater, and massive jack-ups in his jeans coupled with tacky white trainers. I will never forget when soon after on the same day I saw this ultra nerdy looking guy pored over 2 laptops and a pile of books through a window while outside it was nice and sunny with hot girls frolicking around.add that to the maths jokes we used to tell for entertainment in the kitchen..

    Actually I just remembered Imperial. While I have never actually seen any nerds there I have heard stories....
    Imperial defines nerdiness

    Is it really that bad? I'm in year 12 and I'm considering going there but if it's really that bad I might reconsider...

    What if we met on Sunday afternoon/night, October 2, in front of an easy-to-locate place and then decided what to do from there? That gives everyone a good week to go through welcome week, get acquainted with all the places and societies and city, etc. and it'll be a nice way to end the week before classes start.
    Ive heard worse plans see you guys in october

    October 2 plan sounds good to me!
    Also, I'm from Toronto, and go to U of T (as my super unoriginal username attests). I'm doing an exchange to exeter this year. I've never been to Yellowknife, but I have a friend who's been to the North West Territories who says it's gorgeous. I'd love to go some time [Sorry - totally irrelevant to nerd culture...]

    Hallo!

    Have just found this thread and am ridiculously pleased there are other proud nerds coming to Exeter this year
    Am coming from Belfast and there is a sad lack of nerd culture here

    Yay for Who fans and nerdfighters :tardis:

    October 2nd meetup sounds great, any more details?

    See you all soon!

    As far as I can tell they're on the same road (new north) ?

    Not looking forward to the trek up to lectures from there
    At least it will provide toned legs after a while?

    Yeah, I can't work out from Google Maps which is catered and which part is self catered, I think the catered part has The Ram bar in it?

    Indeed, I don't think I'll bother with a gym subscription :P

    The interactive map on the Exeter accommodation website is not much more helpful, I think you may be right about The Ram being in catered though. Lucky you!

    Was debating about joining some athletic society (poss swimming or tennis) but will maybe hold off on this until I can walk up the hill without wheezing

    How about this for the meetup:

    October 2nd, around 4 pm, meet in front of the cathedral? Then we could go get dinner somewhere and just get to know one another.

    That sounds like a plan - who wants to create it?

    If someone does, just post the name of the event here so we can search it on fb and 'attend' or not.
