Over the last few weeks, 15 of our current students called Girtonians to chat about their time at Cambridge, and to update them on College life and A Great Campaign. Thanks to the generosity of our community we have raised our target of £250,000! Thank you very much for your support and for taking the time to talk to our students.
'I’ve really loved doing the telethon this term, even if I am just holed up in my room at home. It’s been an amazing way to get a sense of the Girton community and what the alumni experiences have been. From stories of sneaking in past curfew, skating on the pond and generally being terrible cyclists, I feel as though I know Girton a lot better now!' – Eleanor, First Year (History) Undergraduate
‘Personally, I’ve found being a caller for Girton’s telethon to be exciting and rewarding! Sharing in the stories and memories of our Alumni has given me a unique insight into the history of the college, through the eyes of the individuals who helped to shape it! The experience has made me even prouder to be a member of our community.’ – Niamh, Second Year (Veterinary Science) Undergraduate
'Telethon has been so fun for me because I’ve had the chance to connect with people I never would have thought I would. From Dames to Poet Laureates, the experience has been so interesting and these people are always willing to help me out with advice for my future too.' – Josie, First Year (Modern and Medieval Languages) Undergraduate
