Testimonies from 1448 Society members:
I joined the 1448 Society because I am grateful for my experience in the college. I had a challenging year studying in Cambridge as I was switching from an English literature background to finance. My connection with Queens' made my time in Cambridge very enjoyable via interactions with people from various backgrounds in the college, rather than just finance. I also often think fondly of the time spent at the homely library of Queens’ and the free tea and biscuits that were kindly offered to me. I hope the dynamism and caring environment of the college will continue.

Joining The 1448 Society and donating on a regular basis is to me the ideal way of supporting the College. As a teacher, directing my contributions to the educational aspects of Queens' seems the most natural. It is also important for me to personally acknowledge the important part the College has, and continues to play in my life. I know my small contributions make a difference to help the next generation of students at Queens’ who I hope will be inspired to flourish academically and to build life-long friendships.

I joined The 1448 Society after attending my 30th Anniversary Reunion Dinner. I still feel privileged to have spent three glorious years at Queens’, and catching up with my friends and seeing current undergraduates thriving and taking full advantage of what Queens’ offers, prompted me to help to ensure that future generations can enjoy the same wonderful opportunities.
