    (For example, I thought your's and interiority's ones about ritual sacrifice at Durham matriculation ceremonies were really funny, but singularly failed to think of anything even remotely witty to say myself...so I just sat there waiting for one of you to post more...lol).
    I assume, that by commending us on our wit, you are revering us as your new Gods? I hasten to add that we are Vengeful Gods™, and will smote your ruin upon the mountainsides... of Durham... at any given moment, lest you obey our every whim. We'll lead as Two Kings.

    *Vengeful Roar*

    I have many whims that need obeying.
    ...Is that some kind of hint to a sexual fantasy, Emmanuelle-stylee?

    And in the presence of such superior beings, I shall turn into Shilling, the servile, drooling cretin....hummm.
    But indeed, I intended no such deification...and btw, I believe Interiorty shall be your fair lady Queen, if I am not much mistaken (?)

    Yeah, so please don't make her angry. You wouldn't like her when she's angry. She has fangs, and she ain't afraid to use them.

    I heard an exchange to California mentioned, but with limited places. Within the Economics department there are a couple of European exchanges, but nothing that impressive. I'd seen better schemes at Warwick and York, but I'm not planning on going abroad.
    Warwick doesn´t have a scheme at all, it´s a year in industry! Your course takes a year longer then.

    But Ben...if you're from Munich, then you'll already be "abroad" in Durham, won't you?
    hehehe... you´re right, but that doesn´t prevent me from moving on, does it? I´d still love to see the states, even though I hate their government and a lot more I think it would be a great opportunity. I think the more you go away the more you want to go away, not the otehr way round.

    Hmmm...well, once I've moved to England, I'll consider myself far enough away from home, for the next three or so years. Clearly I'm not as adventurous as you.

    Same here! I couldn't bear moving all my stuff all over again. Plus, I'm not a very good traveller Going abroad does sound really exciting though

    Don't really know very much about it, to be honest. It's a Hill College, so it can't be all that bad. Is that where you've got an offer from? What are you going to read?

    I didn't apply to St Aidans but got an offer from there. I went to visit it and it looks really cool, although from the outside its not the most attractive building, all the rooms are being refurbished so I think by October all of the rooms will be re-done (or at least a good number of them). I saw some of the new rooms and they look really good, theres a sink, desk, bed (obviously!), lockable storage under the bed plus a fridge and internet connection in all rooms. The people seemed nice there and seemed like there was a good range of people (not all rah's!). So yeah, overall I'm happy to be going there! Except for maybe not walking up that big hill every day hehe...

    errr i know there are like 11 pages of this but i will answer the original question:

    Pros
    *Good rep with employers (people like to say Durham isn't actually any good, but employers still here durham and think 'impressive' ...so get told)
    *Very Pretty!!!
    *Real sense of belonging due to collegiate system, rivalry etc
    *Great social life!!!
    *Everything is so close to everything else
    *Departments v. good - Geography - best in Europe, Biology- v. good teaching and research centre (they are the ones i do so the only ones i know about :P )
    many more but can't be bothered right now.....list is too long

    Cons
    *Too many hills!
    *Lots of Rahs (but they are great entertainment)
    *The annoying people who don't actually go to durham telling you that it is boring and a crap uni.......they don't have a clue tho....we are better than them anyway

    Any contributions would be fab! I'm going out of my mind trying to decide

    My dad met two blokes that went to Durham recently- they have loads of fun, go out loads and go away for Spring break to exotic locations with all their Durhamer mates whenever they can. lol.

    i really dont think there are that many rahs..its merely a perception.. and i have to say, id prefer rahs than real towny/scally people.. id says rahs on the whole are pretty inoffensive really
