  Entrance to Jesus

Named after some guy in the Bible, this college has traditionally been popular with Welsh students. The story goes that if you call out the name Jones in the quad, 40 windows will open in response....

Apparently at Christmas it's popular to ring up the college and ask "Is this Jesus?". When they reply, you say "Happy Birthday!"

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
