St Edmunds offers a really diverse community with lots of international students and mature students who have persued other interests before their time at Cambridge. There's always someone in college to have an interesting conversation with! Students also have closer contact with the college fellows than at most colleges. For example at St Edmunds the fellows eat with the students rather than eating on high table.
