This is turned into a conversation since we are all online right now but anyway, is Cuthberts one of the colleges in town? Or is it one of the hill colleges?

it is in town, I think I prefer that. But at the moment I would be quite tolerant about alternatives, religion is REALLY not my cup of tea... even though nobody could tell me so far how religious chads is and how that affects a non-religious student...

heres some quotes from really really old posts:

"...Chads: also very religious but it is so small and apparently has one of the best communities in the Uni as everybody knows everybody. accomodation is alright but nothing special apparently. again bar is stupidly small and dark."

and

"...It shouldn't really be a problem if you're not religious, although John's is the most religious college in Durham really, even more so than Chads, and quite evangelical."

and

"...Chad's and John's were set up as religious institutions shortly afterwards."


But it might not actually be that religious. and its probably a realy nice college too

You know I dont mind so much, I jsut cant help trying to do everything perfect... guess everybody has that at some time!
I actually worry more about the people applying there, but that is probably a total prejudice too and they are cool like everywhere! ;-)

I'm Principal of St Chad's and you'd probably get a kick out of visiting us. True we have a religious foundation, and there are a bunch of us who are ordained, but we're not in your face with religion: quite the opposite. Very few of our students would describe themselves as religious, and they tend to choose us because of our academic emphasis and our moderate size (375 students). I'd think we are among the most tolerant and open of any college -- but don't take my word for it ... check us out.

Hey,

My roomie and I are seriously considering going to Durham and we've applied to St. John's which is also considered to be 'very religious'... I haven't let that deterred me from putting Durham as either firm choice, or insurance offer.

Look forward to seeing you there, if I get in.

Hehe.. xoxo

I'm at Durham now, and it's amazing. What do you want to know? Collingwood is alright for a hill college, the bailey ones are better (except for Hatfield). All I can really say is Durham Rocks!!!!

Any opinions on St Aidan's? I've got a BBB offer from there for modern languages (Arabic and French). Come to think of it, does anyone know anything about what's happening with the arabic course? Cos I know its just changed departments....



Thank you!

I'm going to Chad's because it's religious.

I hope other people are doing this too.

I changed to it last week, just e-mailed the admissions person for my course and she changed it.

Just wondering which College does the International Students enrol in? Is there a specific college they must enrol in? or do they mix in with the crowd?
