The level of noise from revellers attending the Rhodes House Ball on the 15th May has angered finalists at St John’s College.Jason Keen, finalist at St John’s, updated his Facebook status with, “Jason Keen can’t hear himself think through all the jazz music blaring over from Rhodes House Ball – clearly ear plugs must be included in the ticket price.” Remarks from other students showed they shared his anger. The ball, just under half a mile away from the St John’s site. included a string quartet and a live jazz band. The Registrar of Rhodes House, Ms Mary Eaton, was adamant that they “followed all the correct proceedings laid down by the council”, including applying for a licence to have amplified music outside, and monitoring the decibel level throughout the night to ensure they did not exceed acceptable limits. However students at St John’s feel that the noise pollution was at an anti-social level and disrupted their studies.
