Overheard in Somerville

My Somerville Colleague Quentin Miller passes along this vignette from today's Open Day...

Overheard as I left college by the front gate ...

Somerville helper to gaggle of students walking north briskly past the college: "Going to the Maths Institute?"

One of the students, without looking up or breaking pace: "Yeah."

Helper, shouting after the students as they bustle away: "56 seconds from your bed to the lecture! Come to this college!"

I never timed it myself, but I will certainly miss more than half of my commute to my office occurring after I enter the mathematics building.
