For me, the best thing about Emma is the
inter-year socialising - it makes it a lovely
community to be a part of

I like having a student-run bar,
because it keeps it friendly and cheap!

One of the best things about Emmanuel is the

From Flutes to Skis to Desert to Emmanuel College Porters’ Lodge

Monty’s army career started when he was 16 and he joined the Junior Leader’s Regiment Royal Armoured Corps in a “not very picturesque” corner of Dorset. So challenging was the course that, of the 48 who started, only eight passed out two years later. He went on to join the 4th/7th Royal Dragoon Guards and was stationed in Germany for 17 years, first in Detmold and then in Paderborn.
