How Posh Was Your University?
It ~may~ have had a Latin motto and the odd stray red trouser wearing lad, but it was not very posh. While you might not have had fancy buildings or a sailing society you probably had a lot more fun not spending three years in a stuffy antiquarian institution.
You may have had a few fancy buildings but you probably never went in them. Your uni might have had the odd celebrity alumnus, and you probably had a couple of posh sports teams and a Tory society.
Your campus was no doubt littered with delightful architecture (apart from those horrible 1960s buildings which they omitted from the prospectus) and there was definitely quite a high number of private school students. You probably regularly had talks from famous alumni.
Your university was probably full of red trouser wearing boys called Hugo. You definitely had black tie balls and a very successful rowing team, and you can count at least one Prime Minister in your alumnus. It probably looked like Hogwarts to be honest.
