    Exactly.

    I used to love British bulldog, although it go banned from being played indoor because someone got dump tackled and broke their collar bone. So we had to play out side with no studs.

    I used to play BB at school. What a brilliant game! I often thought about starting a BB Club. We always played outside. Got caked in mud and well and truly battered and bruised.

    They care about things that matter, not silly student politics.

    Sounds more like a social club than a uni. Why are there no safe spaces? What happens if a students feels their culture is being appropriated? Who do they turn to? :mmm:

    He learned about agriculture - the key thing being how to drive a landrover at 50mph across a field of wheat, jump out waving a shotgun while shouting "Get oooorf my land" at a couple of unsuspecting townies.

    I learnt a hell of a lot, the is how I landed a job in one the world's largest banks.

    You don't need social clubs when the uni is small enough to know almost every fresher. There are only about 700 a year. The local town is filled with students.

    There is no point a specialist uni catering for all when all don't want to come. They cater to the needs of the students.

    What the?? Of what relevance is it to him now that he's living in a city? You don't go to uni to study farming. We are talking about making a difference,interacting with people from difficult cultures and places in the world,coming together to learn and share

    Lots of people to university to study farming or "Agricultural Engineering" Agriculture is a highly complex business.

    I used to go to Silsoe College myself which is part of Cranfield University. It was one of the biggest agricultural colleges around; it is (or at least was) also home to the Chartered Institute of Agricultural Engineers.

    I was doing an MSc in Rural Engineering at the time and later did a stint with "Silsoe Aid for Agricultural Development" (SAFAD - though it's called something different these days) in Guatemala. SAFAD's been sending young agriculturalists overseas for over 50 years.

    I see the conversation has turned to farming and reminiscing about the good ol' days in a rural British uni before them damn feminists and lgbts came along :yep:


    Stay tuned for MKII everyone.
    Feminism hasn't reached it yet. It is still firmly in the past.

    I didn't study farming at uni, well I only had one module in it. I studied rural surveying. It has the same core principles as all surveying, which is what I now do.

    The uni was very diverse, we had the Scottish, Welsh and Irish all of whom have different cultures to England.

    These are the people who will be feeding that nation, that makes more of a difference than most people. Some of those who graduate will go abroad to share their highly advanced farming practices as we are one the most advanced nations in this area.

    I like a sense of community, I like to be able to walk into the local pub and say "I'll have the usual."

    I'm so glad there is some common sense on TSR, it's a rare sight here. Shame there appears to be a shortage over in Cambridge.

    It is glorious. You can tell it is a good uni when I was the Equality and diversity officer, democratically voted in after a beautiful speech and record pint downing.

    I don't know,I'm not really fond of that. I'm just so used to London that being somewhere quiet and rural would make me feel so weirded out

    It was a token position to make the uni seem more progressive. I didn't actually do anything.
