Sidney has lots to offer for everyone. Whenever I'm in College, I always feel the welcoming and friendly vibe. Sidney’s central location, close-knit community, lovely gardens, well-resourced library and in-house Gym are ideal to strike a good balance between intellectual and social aspects of life in Cambridge.

As a College Research Associate, I am grateful for all the opportunities to participate in various College events. Sidney College Formals offer a great opportunity for networking both within Cambridge and beyond in a relaxed setting (thanks to the catering team for their hard work!). I enjoy attending Graduate Suppers and seminars that provide an excellent channel for students and Fellows from different disciplines to meet and share ideas.

I very much appreciate and support Sidney’s outreach activities where various events are organised for everyone to engage and give back to the academic community. As a Director of Studies, I particularly enjoyed interacting with prospective students as well as delivering an academic session for students from under-represented areas and backgrounds during College Open Days.

My special thanks to all students, Fellows and staff for making Sidney a great place to learn, grow and reflect. I am privileged to be part of it.
