I love Freshers’ Fairs :-D.


  1. Time to open Neil’s Swap Shop… 😀

  2. Our version of Fresher’s Fair (‘Catapalooza’) just simply blows. If I ever have to change Unis, I’m going to one that gives out free stuff by the bagful.
    Or I could just pay MSU tuition and study in England for a year. Hmmmm.

  3. You could do. Tuition fees for US students in Bradford are around $15000, plus you’ll need around $3000 to live somewhere and probably $2000-$3000 for everything else. Obviously there’s the issue of flights and shipping too. But how does that compare to studying in the US? I gather you guys pay through the nose for your degrees.
