    Hi,

    I am a current 1st (well second now I guess) year student at Cambridge, and am trying with a few people to organise a central guide to life at the uni for freshers. Most of us were clueless in the first few weeks as to workload and expectations etc, not to mention relying on legendary word of mouth for things such as Life and Gardies. A central guide on the internet (we have a website basically setup and as of now content-less) with information on all the colleges, city/uni life, departments, work, faculties, everything, is greatly needed.

    So, we need people to write stuff, because we haven't been to every college and thus don't know about them all (obviously). We would simply like people to volunteer to write abotu their college, accomomdation, department, etc, on anything or everything to do with the uni, the work, the experience, and the city. Trivial or non trivial, we need opinions and articles on anything please! I can be found at mk526 (@cam...) with any ideas or questions or articles etc.

    Thanks! Matt

    There are some good ones but it's really patchy. Thanks though that does help with a lot of what we need!

    If you manage to organise this by October, I'd really like a copy!

    Sorry; I'm a fresher :ninja: The right people probably will come along, but it will take a few days, I wager.

    *Steps forwards*

    Send me a private message and I'll write stuff about Clare, History, some stuff about rowing, music, theatre, and other things if you like.

    Wow, I really think that would be invaluable for us freshers. I would certainly like a read.

    You won't be able to just copy and paste them into your own website though.
