"Queens' is lovely, a close community without feeling huge. The old part of College is really beautiful and the new part is comfortable; the closeness of the spaces adds to the intimate feel. Queens' is full of friendly people, and everyone finds someone they have something in common with." Florence, 2nd year English student.
