Settling In

In this letter of 2 October Alice describes some of the customs of the College, particularly in relation to meals, and her responsibilities as the ‘house representative’. The College Regulations governing the behaviour expected of students appear very restrictive in today’s world: curfews were in place and a student had to obtain her parents’ consent in writing before she could apply to her Tutor for permission to be away on a Saturday night.  Alice recalls that “no male friends were permitted in bedrooms at any time”.
