    you cant blame my patriotism - clare already seems my arch-nemesis, probably because it is such a good college, I have to defend emmanuel from all competition!
    In reality the two colleges couldn't really care less. Clare doesn't need defending anyway

    Hey Helenia - I'm going to a Clare Open Day in September, it had better be good! Any particular recommendations as to what I should check out in Clare or Cambridge generally?

    Look around Mem (the first year acomm on the other side of the river). Take a look around the fellows' garden and down into the buttery/jcr (between A and H staircase basements in Old Court).
    If you do have time take a wander up past madglen to the Colony and walk around, you're likely to be living there for two years so it's worth seeing. It won't be on the open day, but it's not gated and will be full of language students so it should be accessible.
    I hope you get some good weather, it's been fantastic staying in Old Court in this weather. The view of the river is lovely from my window .

    Thanks very much - I will definitely take all that in. Don't think I will be staying in the college though - it's not definite yet but I'm told they probably will not have accommodation. I saw Clare in February, and it was a gorgeous sunny day - it was beautiful I must admit .

    It's great - 3 purchases and you get a free slice of your choice! It says on the card they have to be over £5 each but they must go easy on students (of all types, not just Cambridge ones) because I just bought 2 slices and they gave me 2 stamps. Yay!

    It's just Peterhouse - no "College" after it

    It's the smallest and the oldest. Nothing particularly remarkable about it apart from that - not an academic high-flyer or amazing sports college (mostly due to size). I have some friends there who seem happy enough.

    Yeah, just think that the adonians society (or whatever they're called) should be mentioned,
