College System, Extracurriculars, Learning Resources, but.... diversity?

Durham’s collegiate system gives a strong, intimate sense of community to incoming students, and also allows for a collective sense of connection to Durham as an active and personally accessible entity across all of its students. Sporting and extracurricular opportunities are both plentiful and leveled from amateur all the way to, in many cases, professional. Furthermore, many of Durham’s student led clubs offer trips around the country and the world that several other UK universities can’t conjure up due to their lower prestige. ____In terms of the academic and educational opportunities afforded to students, Durham is second to none. The library is great, and the lecturers are generally very well read and passionate about their disciplines. In terms of location, Durham is tiny: it’ll take you half an hour to walk from one end of the town to the other. Although a lot of city goers find it too small, very few deny Durham’s archaic charm. Durham is teeming with riverside walks and lush vegetation, so if you’re a nature lover Durham’s countryside feel should genuinely factor into your decision. Now, on to the big catch with Durham: if diversity was a rainbow, Durham would be grey-scale at best. Expect posh, southern elitism to permeate a lot of social circles. NOW, there is nothing wrong with rich kids who enjoy each others company, and if that’s your cup of tea then by all means sip away. BUT, if you’re from a lower socio-economic standing in the UK understand that social barriers and cliques run rampant in Durham, and you may fell categorized, and then ostracized seconds after hello. However, in my experience, I found that this makes making like-minded friends much easier, and if you can get past its lack of diversity and size, you should have more than enough to keep your time at Durham spontaneous, educational and enjoyable.
