I've been seeing a lot of posts on this forum asking what college is best suited for them, and I was wondering whether we'd benefit from having an editable pros and cons page for the Durham colleges a la Oxford and Cambridge's?

For example;

St Mary's

Pros:
  • Beautiful grounds
  • Nice view of the Cathedral
  • Historic and one of the older colleges if that's a factor for you
  • Good links with Teikyo University
  • The catering is generally considered to be very good

Cons:
  • You may have to share a room
  • The college bar is quite small and might not be for you if you're into the party scene

I thought adding a page like that might help a lot of people who are panicking about which college to apply for in a really concise and accessible way, and might help declutter the forum a bit? : 3

I'd also appreciate that! In the mean time, this thread by Reiss64 might help: https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/sho...rimary_content
