During my seven years at Trevs, I completed three law degrees – an LLB, an MJur, and a PhD. However, I took far more away from Trevs than just academic qualifications. Confidence, self-awareness, an understanding of purpose and responsibility, the ability to talk to just about anyone… these are just some of the gifts that Trevs gave me, and which have shaped my career, and my life.

But most of all I recall the warmth and kindness of everyone and in particular our porters and their humour as they helped us timid Freshers settle in.
I now see Trevs as being the place where I first started to grow up, to stretch my wings physically, intellectually and emotionally. It is also where I developed my love of the law and of politics so no surprises that I have ended up working for the Government Legal Department as a Government lawyer.

The beauty of Trevs being a smaller college was that I was able to meet people from all over the world who were studying a huge range of courses. I made an amazing group of friends who I’ve stayed in touch with since graduating, and I don’t know if I’d have gotten that in a bigger college as a commuter.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Trevs and really value the friendships and experiences that I had whilst I was there.

We have achieved many wonderful things with the help of our alumni.
Our two largest recent fundraising projects have been the Garden of Reflection and the Garden Gym. These projects have made a huge difference to our students’ College experience, and we are extremely grateful to our alumni for their generous donations.
In 2019 we completed the Garden of Reflection. The garden features a pond and wildflower meadow and offers a quiet place for reflection and contemplation.
In 2017 we built the Garden Gym as part of our fiftieth anniversary '50 for 50' campaign. It has a great range of cardio equipment and a large free-weight area and is used regularly by our students.
I was scared and homesick when I arrived at Trevelyan. I left feeling worthy and equipped for the challenges ahead. That confidence has remained to this day.
