Sorry to start the new term on a whine, but I have a suggestion to make to the Freshers’ Reps. This week is designed to welcome new students, to let them have fun and learn where everything is fine. But I don’t see why there is a double standard at work here. In the same day that many freshers will read their welcome booklet instructing them to keep quiet after 11pm, they are led through campus AFter this time, through residential zones, shouting, singing, whistling and so on. Fair play — it’s all honest fun — but how can we expect people to conform to the study rules when they’ve been shown in their first hours exactly how to break them?
