Among the new faces

Back on campus. With skydiving, London trips, and overnighters elsewhere, I’ve spent precisely two nights in the last 15 in my own room, although I’ve sort of adapted; I don’t feel I’m running on empty, far from it (life’s actually full of adrenalin.) But one thing I notice this morning is the predominance of new faces around Lakeside.

Summer courses and short modules abound in ‘Term 4’, the near-mythical part of the university calendar that spans summer, and the school puts its empty residential blocks to good use. So there’s an influx of changing faces around the student village, none of whom I recognise. (Even on a 5000 strong campus population you see the same set of faces during the academic year.) And now that villagey feel has gone. Just another sign it’s all coming to an end…
