            Fantastic University!

            I thoroughly enjoyed my 4 years at Queens. Though it was tough, I learnt a lot about myself and the maxim, 'the more you put in, the more you get out'. Although I'm not involved in telecoms anymore, I'm very proud of my degree and my wonderful old Uni!
