    Oh, i thought it's proper dress for the girls. Do you have any photos for any of these parties?
    Just google "formal hall Cambridge". And ignore the hit that shows a scene from HP, that would be cool, but not true.

    Maybe for different colleges but mine was definitely, white blouse and black skirt. You can wear dresses if you want though. I have photos for halfway hall but not matric and I haven't graduated yet. And since the photos are all of individual friends, I'd need their respective permissions before I could upload them (I was doing a "This is the halfway (subject)" theme)

    has anyone here from St Johns received anything close to a 'fresher's pack' yet? I got a few emails giving me some example sheets/notes from last year (Im doing maths) and about 6 forms to fill in on camtools but I havent been asked anything about accomodation. has anyone (going to St Johns) got anything for accomodation or am I just missing something?
    I'm for John's, I haven't either, I rang up and apparently they won't be sending them out until next week Haven't got a reading list (for English) either though, I don't know if I should have had one by now...

    Hey, all I've had is a 'congratulations' letter, and the same stuff on camtools, no idea about accomodation and I'm going to USA on Monday till the 19th September, so it's kind of a problem going to ring them tomorrow! Glad it's not just me

    Both, they said the fresher's pack should be sent next week and accommodation will come later too.

    Yeah I was wondering about the 'Freshers Parties' like the regional ones, is anyone actually gong?

    If you're going to be at only one address in the US, you could get stuff posted there - change your address with your college

    or get a friend to pick up the stuff, be awesome and scan it all for you and send it to you

    Accommodation has been a bit all-over-the-place this year, but as someone said, info will be coming out soon. And if you're wanting some more interesting information, I am at this minute putting together the JCR's handbook for you all, which will be uploaded onto CamTools soon

    Check out the forum on the JCR website or the Facebook group if you've got any questions - there are people checking both every day
