“I was also attracted to the outreach efforts that the college was making and the high percentage of state educated students that they admit was certainly a factor in my decision in this regard.”
Why did you choose Churchill?
My choice of college was very much intentional, I applied directly to Churchill mainly because having visited Cambridge prior I was very much struck by what I perceived to be the sameness or close similarities between many of the colleges. However, from doing research into Churchill and even from looking at it, I could tell that the opposite was the case. I was also attracted to the outreach efforts that the college was making and the high percentage of state educated students that they admit was certainly a factor in my decision in this regard.
What is college life like for you?
College life is relaxed, warm and wholesome. It’s a bit surreal to actually think of the amount of time that I would have spent in college by the time I graduate so I’m grateful for the fact that college life is something that I find ideal. It’s relaxed in the sense that the general environment isn’t one of strain but is calm, warm and enables me to find a balance between the academic, extracurricular and social commitments that I have. This is something which I appreciate about being in the college and is something that I value because in times when you’re more busy having a place and people that you can fall back on is really important.
Would you recommend applying to Churchill?
I would definitely recommend applying to Churchill because in doing so not only do you get the chance to study at one of the best academic institutions in the world but you will also get a more well-rounded and wholesome experience of your time Cambridge, exposure to great people and an amazing support network that consists of friends and college staff. Applying to Churchill is something that I would encourage all prospective applicants to consider!
