This exhibition celebrates the success stories of past and present students of the College. Over the years the College has evolved, with a continuously expanding student body, and progressive teaching and research profile. But throughout the history of the College, some traditions have sustained. Graduation ceremonies, and awards for academic, recreational and social achievement, continue to recognise success.

The achievements of students have been permanently preserved in the Archives of the College and its predecessor bodies. From the beginning of Queen Mary to the present day, the achievements of students have been recorded.

Generations of student’s have kept mementoes of their university experience, ranging from graduation ceremony programmes, to menus from clubs and society dinners, dance cards, photographs and sports uniforms.

This exhibition celebrates success at Queen Mary by exploring the College records and personal memorabilia of past students, held in the Archives.
