Half of Oxford's colleges in the redWatch
A certain Bursar is trying to have a much-loved college cat put down...
Can anyone explain the Van Noorden index in terms of how evil its author is? As if I get the grades he'll be teaching me Economics next year...
Not as an author. The 'rate of inflation' in Oxford Uni, isn't the rate as set by the bank of England. It's usually around 2% higher and is called the 'Van Noorden' index. It will determine how much college provided facilities will go up in cost (i.e your rent for one...)
OK, so he won't be charging me for tutorials or anything?
Roger's a great guy. Even if he does like engineering.
Will I have to grow to love engineering?
No, this is our Bursar. She clearly doesn't seem to like cats all that much and has decided that ours gets in the way.
Good ol' Godfrey is that? Both are pretty good, I haven't been taught by either, but from the little experience I have I don't have a problem with them.
A little unnerving, but he's clearly a good economist.
