undergraduates[edit]

from the article: "There are now no undergraduate members, but All Souls did once have them...The downside of this soon appeared..." What was the downside? Could someone please add it to the article, as folks who don't know this inside information have no clue what 'downside' means. Thanks. --159.178.230.36 (talk) 18:40, 15 March 2010 (UTC)

Title[edit]

ne would have thought that one of the most highly reputed seats of learning in the country would have taken the car to present its own name properly: can anyone enlighten me as to why it is not called All Souls'? Kevin McE 10:18, 5 April 2006 (UTC)

Because "All Souls" isn't a genitive, it's just part of the name. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 20:27, 5 April 2006 (UTC)
Or maybe because the naming of the college predates the use of the apostrophe to indicate the genitive. 217.204.51.162 (talk) 12:38, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

Graduate students[edit]

Are there really none? There are usually a handful (or used or be), finishing D.Phils. etc. --Mel Etitis (Μελ Ετητης) 08:59, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

I suppose you're quite right! I was thinking of this category as synonymous with "MCR Members" or similar, coming as it does after the MCR/GCR president, but this isn't correct. Do you think it be more accurate to put 8 (approx) as the Prize Fellows could be regarded as falling into this category. At least, they will for the first few years of their (seven-year) Fellowships when they are studying for further degrees. Two are elected each year, so even if they followed 1+3 or 2+2 year courses there shouldn't be more than about 8 in total. --Casper Gutman 12:59, 10 June 2006 (UTC)

Architecture[edit]

I've rated this article as a stub from an architectural perspective as there's very little architectural content at the moment. --Mcginnly | Natter 09:31, 20 December 2006 (UTC)


students[edit]

Onle 8 students? but the college is huge, surely this is a mistake? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 86.156.70.56 (talk) 19:55, 25 March 2008 (UTC)

Lead image (infobox)[edit]

Would there be any objection to moving the existing infobox image to the gallery and replacing it with either of these images? Thanks-Godot13 (talk) 20:28, 25 April 2014 (UTC)
