‘Overall, I don’t really know where to start to describe my time here. Having chosen Churchill after visiting friends here I’ve honestly never regretted it. Each hall is uniquely different and Churchill is really made by the combination of the quirky 1950’s buildings, its setting and most importantly the people who are here. The open, laid-back atmosphere really prevails. Everyone here is incredibly outgoing and boundless; it’s reassuringly easy to bump into Churchillers whilst out and about in Bristol, London and the wider world. There are stories of people bumping into each other in New Zealand and the Far East whilst travelling. Having been elected Hall JCR President it’s been a great way to get to know everyone and organise some of the best events in all the Bristol Halls. The experience of this year has been a great way to start my time at Bristol and truly priceless.’
James Chance – JCR President 2008/2009
‘Friendly, nice surroundings set amongst the Botanic Gardens. There’s good support from tutors if you need it too.’
‘I love being able to sit outside in the Quad in the sunshine and watch the world go by; something which is just so quintessentially Churchill.‘
‘Churchill has a strong tradition of legendry parties. Something which I was more than happy to continue by joining the Hall JCR and becoming involved in the organization of the Hall Snow Ball in 2008. Pulling off a £10k Ball for nearly 500 people that left everyone speechless in awe has to be one of my best moments at Churchill.’
George Furnivall – JCR Vice President 2008/2009
'I really like the feel of the place, the old blocks with their large rooms around the Quad. Churchill is also the closest of the Stoke Bishop Halls to Lectures, which is nice in the mornings too.’
‘Aside from the atmosphere, Churchill just seems to have a lot more space than other halls. Our Dining hall can seat everyone for Formal meals and there’s more than enough room in our JCR and Hall Bar for any event. Something which was easy to see at our brilliant Snow Ball.’
