I was shocked to read that Chris Llewellyn Smith and Justine Roberts (OT Trinity 2017) were referred to as graduates of ‘New’.

This was a ‘new one’ on me as a New College man (of 1958).  An abbreviation to ‘New Coll.’ was allowable in the cause of saving space where needed: otherwise, the College’s full name was the only acceptable appellation. Indeed some of my friends from other places said I was up at ‘New College College’.
