There was (and still is) a strong alumni organization to match recent graduates going into business and finance with professional contacts. The same is somewhat true for people in the arts.

Some were spiffy and state-of-the-art. Others were somewhat antiquated and rustic (like the physics labs). Considering that many of the buildings were hundreds of years old, their condition was remarkably good, even the ancient ones.

Tremendously varied. There were indigent students on scholarships as well as foreign royals. It was, as they say, a very rich tapestry. Despite the elitist reputation, almost all the people I knew well were egalitarians with progressive political views.
