Balliol College :: SP5106
Balliol College, founded in 1263, is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford.
Among the college's alumni are three former prime ministers (H. H. Asquith, who once described Balliol men as possessing "the tranquil consciousness of an effortless superiority", Harold Macmillan, and Edward Heath), five Nobel laureates, and a number of literary figures and philosophers. Moral philosopher Adam Smith is perhaps the best known alumnus of the college.

New College :: SP5106
New College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford. The full name of the college is The Warden and Scholars of St Mary's College of Winchester in Oxford. The College's official name, College of St Mary, is the same as that of the older Oriel College; hence, it has been referred to as the "New College of St Mary" and is now almost always called "New College".
The College stands along Holywell Street and New College Lane (known for Oxford's Bridge of Sighs), next to All Souls College, Harris Manchester College, Hertford College, The Queen's College and St Edmund Hall.
The College is one of the main choral foundations of the University of Oxford, regarded as one of the leading choirs of the world. The College Choir has recorded over one hundred albums, and has been awarded two Gramophone Awards.
