Geography Department 1965 68 - a Memory of Kingston upon Hull.

I remember being unhappy living in digs and cycling up to Uni in my mini skirt.
Prof Wilkinson telling me that he 'adored tall women' (he'd be sacked now) or I could have got a first!
Wishing I was living in halls.
Three years seeming an eternity.
Why did I stick it out?
What happened to everyone else? I was more successful than I could ever have imagined, so glad I got the degree, but wish I'd gone somewhere more prestigious - like Cambridge?!
