I attended the post offer open day, I really like my course and now I'm thinking about firming Durham. I have a couple of little worries though and would appreciate others opinions. Does anyone ever feel a little claustrophobic staying in a small town and an even smaller college community? I'm used to living in a city and even though I wouldn't be too worried about there being a varied night life or anything, I'm afraid that I'd feel a little stifled. Also at the open day everyone was just so enthusiastic and chirpy and I found it a little overwhelming. I know they were just being nice and friendly but there does seem to be a lot of emphasis on 'college spirit' and I probably wouldn't be all that bothered about that stuff. Finally I was wondering if, as an Irish student, would I fit in? I'd be afraid that I'd stick out because very few Irish students go to Durham, and I might never really feel like I belonged.
I know these are silly minor things but any help would be appreciated.
