Studying computer science at Durham opens up so many opportunities, whether it's the chance to learn and explore a wide range of aspects from computer science or take part in any sort of society or sport you want, Durham really has it all. My advice is don't be afraid to try out things as Durham and our department is very supportive. From trying a new sport with college or taking part in DurHack as a first year, something I did and learnt a lot from, trying out a bunch of things will make your experience of studying at Durham really nice.
