I have tried to write this article three times now and failed. Each time I think, am I going too far? Is someone going to shout at me if I write about this? But this is an issue that has gone on for far too long and appears as an accepted fact of life when attending a top university. It is something we need to acknowledge.
University is often sold to prospective students as an opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and to broaden our horizons; an exciting, somewhat utopian, possibility. However, the reality is often a culture shock upon realising the extent of other people’s charmed lives and the close-minded prejudice that comes with it.
