Arg!

I was attempting to enact a monty python sketch!

Ah well.
I'm sorry. I'll go and flagellate myself as punishment for not recognising it.

Is this the right room for an argument?
No, Trevs is undeniably rubbish.

Neither will you in a year. Can I look down on you then?

Actually there's a chance I'll be doing a PhD. For which I will be getting paid. You know. Paid to live like a student.

Harrumph!

I'm quite entitled to the odd nonsensical comment, they will come regularly, don't worry.

I have some evidence from literature here as to why Trevs is rubbish!

It's taken from "Mo Mowlam, The Biography"by Julia Langton (Little and Brown, London, 2000) p 72

"Trevelyan College was a brand-new womens college which had won awards for its architecture and was much prized by the university. It was actually a nightmare to live in, designed rather like a spider's web with mysterious corridors leading who knew where;it could take forever to make a short journey within its precincts."

There we go!

I know, which makes it all the sadder for quoting it now. But, apparently a sculpture of her was made,commissioned by the University. Anybody any clues as to where it is, or whether she got given it? Is it in Trevs?

Yup it's in the Dowrick Suite of Trevs - which is the little conference hall opposite the main entrance of Trevs. *Not* the big hexagonal hall that some people have lectures in....but just next to that!

It's just of her head though, not a full sized statue!

Plus...in that quote, she never said it was crap, she just said it was a nightmare trying to navigate through it....which it is....for idiots/freshers/people from foreign colleges :p:

That bloody sculpture looks awful.

It's the scariest thing in the world trying to work with it staring at you.

that said, she was quite the piece in her earlier days.
