Downing college - cambridgeWatch
So what do you think of this college boys and girls? Never (rarely) heard of anyone mentioning it... is it not popular? I applied there for engineering and I went there to be interviewed. It is such a wonderful place! Spacious college, beautiful environment, really nice people!
Engineers have to go a bit further afield, I think, so don't use closeness to lecture theatres as a criterion if you're applying for engineering! It is a very pretty college and very big; I think it has a bit of a reputation for being hardcore-sporty, because I think the rugby players went there. (This being at the time when Land Economy was the course offered to decent rugby players if they got DDE at A level... not that I'm knocking it nowadays, it's a good course!) Anyway. Downing was too big for me but it is indeed very pretty and academically strong. And oh so close to lectures... *sigh*
it was really lovely tho!!
