Hatfield College, Durham- entry 2020

Hello!
I am Louisa and I thought it would be nice to have a thread for the people allocated to Hatfield college to chat.
I'm aiming to study Spanish and Italian but put Arabic down as a third because why not :smile:

tradition/rebellion, the anonymity of the characters except leonardo, maybe something machismo-ey
Thanks those are actually so good, me gusta mucho la tradition/rebellion point.
How are you feeling about the shared accommodation?

My mother wants me to share so I have a "built-in bestfriend" as she put it but I do like my privacy!! I guess it is only for first year and I'd adapt.
Yet, I would have to keep my half of the room tidy. I know they do a survey to match you with people who have similar habits in terms of night owl/early bird and personality traits
I’m sort of excited and sort of dreading it? I’m not the most social person so having someone to talk to from day 1 seems really nice.

What’s the general reputation of Hatfield as a college? Is it good?

I would say that Hatfield is one of the most popular and well regarded colleges but in reality they all offer the same experience. The fact that it's so central though is very convenient and the chapel is soooo cuteee

I thought the same! It will be great to have some friends before we even arrive.

tbh I'm kinda worried about it, not sure if I want to have someone else with a different schedule to me, but on the bright side it is a good chance to make a close friend from the start!



Same! My habits are so irregular I will not know what to say.
