It wasn't my first choice (it was actually my 14th I think), but I'm not too sad about it. It seems really nice and friendly (which are the main things that I always look for) even though it's a bit far from the classics department. In general I would have been happy with every college

I Just got allocated it as my 9th choice and I will be studying philosophy and theology. I initially wasn't too pleased but upon further research I like it quite a lot. At the end of the day it is Durham University that matters and the fact we got in!

yes and historical theology encompasses lots of the classics but I imagine they're held separately? I don't know though. Have you seen the summer ball that St Aidens has? - they literally have a whole fairground put on St Aidens grounds -that redeems the lack of gowned formals hahah

I have looked through the modules for classical civ and it seems that there are quite a few about theology, maybe they are held together! and no, i haven't seen the summer ball but the concept seems so interesting omg. can't wait to go there, everything looks so exciting
Hi! I've also just been allocated to St Aidan's! It was initially my 8th choice I think, but I've grown to really like it, it seems like such a lovely atmosphere! I'm hopefully doing History and French! Does anyone know how to join the WhatsApp group?😁
