David Habersberger (Wyvern 1965)

Although I grew up in suburban Melbourne, my parents were keen for me to go to Queen’s. They were convinced that the best way to gain maximum benefit from a University education was to attend a residential College. I believe that they were absolutely correct. My extremely enjoyable and broadening years in Queen’s provided me with a great platform for later life.

But this wonderful opportunity should not be limited just to those whose parents can afford to make such sacrifices for their children. Without financial support from those who have benefited from the Queen’s experience, the College cannot continue to offer scholarships and other financial help to deserving young women and men who would not otherwise be able to attend it. That is why I have remembered Queen’s College in my will.


 John Henley (Former Master 1993-2002)

As an Arts undergraduate I greatly enjoyed the varied activities of life in College (and derived benefit from most of them!) When I was Master of Queen’s I greatly appreciated all those whose support enabled it to offer the collegiate experience to as wide a variety of students as possible. I am glad to be one of them and have included Queen’s in my Will.


Nicole (Wyvern 2002) and Alex (Wyvern 2000) Webster

We both look back at our time at Queen’s with fond memories. Having taken advantage of all the academic, social and sporting opportunities while living on campus, we are also grateful for the many life-long friendships we made as well as finding each other.

We would like to acknowledge our College experience was made possible by the generosity of others before us. Including Queen’s in our Wills is a small way we can express our gratitude for these experiences and ensure future generations have similar opportunities.


George Willox (Wyvern 1975)

I have included Queen’s in my will for two reasons, firstly as thanks for the important role it has played in shaping my life; and secondly to help the students of the future have the same opportunity to experience the benefits that being part of the Queen’s Community brings.

As I came originally from the country, Queen’s provided support, guidance, friendship and a vast array of opportunities for new experiences and to challenge myself – all things that would have been lacking or difficult to achieve if living elsewhere. Just as importantly, it provided opportunities to develop leadership skills and exposed me to a far richer variety of people, including students, staff and Wyverns, enabling me to gain a broader understanding of the world than would ever have been possible as a Science student coming into the university for daily lectures.
