At uni I lived close to New Hall (now named Blackadder Hall after a student vote, obviously) and my Oxford College was New College (est. 1379) and my gf’s Cambridge college used to be called New Hall but isn’t any more.

Really makes you think, doesn’t it.

The few ppl I know who went to Oxford or Cambridge all seem to go out with other Oxford or Cambridge uni ppl , is this some kind of intellectual snobbery? Don’t want to dilute the brainy genes with a thiko civilian? :wink:

This definitely seems to be the case with our NCT parents group - of 8 couples, 3 are Oxbridge exclusive couples.

Interestingly, I can pretty much guarantee that none of them know where I went to university as I don’t feel the need to constantly offer the information…

It can’t be long until we have a straight-faced New Nu-metal scene.

Ah, an ex-poly alumnus. There’s no shame in it, mate.

It’s not limited to Oxbridge types, but it’s known as social assortative mating.
