What is the college at Durham?
What they mean is everyone knows Hild Bede is the best but will all say their own College out of myopic loyalty. I'm lucky because I'm a Hild Bede student, so when I say it's the best, it's because I'm being honest. And even if I would say that even if it wasn't the best, the fact remains it is the best, so I am not showing bias in my answer.
Maybe it would be better to ask everyone what their 2nd favourite college is.
Hi! This is Graham, I go to Collingwood college but I'm not registered on the student room but wanted to post on this topic, and I know goldenbarnes so he let me post on his account.
My favourite college is Hild Bede, it's brilliant, it's got everything you'd need from a college. It's the best place on earth. I like it a lot more than my college. Hild Bede is amazing. It's my favourite college.
So I have to say, although I go there, Collingwood is my second favourite.
But Hild Bede really is great.
No, really (this is Graham again)
Hild Bede is my college away from college. The people are so nice. It's perfect. I wish I'd gone there. It's great, because it's the perfect mix of knowing everyone yet still having loads of people to meet so it doesn't become claustrophobic. Because the accomodation is done in distinctive blocks, you have crews of sorts, so all the people in Bede block are like their own little college, and ditto for the others! It's incredible. I love Hild Bede. Their social calendar is a lot better than any of the other colleges. And they have loads of grounds and beautiful grassness all around them, and tennis courts aplenty, and their own gym, and a cinema, and a pond, and they're setting by the river is so scenic and beautiful, it's like a postcard.
It truly is the best college at Durham.
2nd favourite college: Aidans
2nd favourite: Cuths. Though even the people there admit it's not 'the' college.
2nd fave - aidans or mildert
