Exams and Exit

During the exam period The Gown blog will not operate - we wouldn't want to distract you from revision! However, a print edition of the newspaper is due out within the next couple of weeks.

For those of you who still have exams to do, we'd like to wish you every success. If you are no longer going to be a student in a few weeks time, we hope you'll have fond memories of this place and if you are coming back next year the new Gown team is looking forward to keeping you informed.

As ever, if you have stories, or would like to send us a letter, you can email us at:

The reigns of The Gown will soon be handed over and future control of this blog belongs to the new Gown team, who are following in the footsteps of greats. (we are so modest!) They may well post more blogs before the summer, but that will be entirely up to them.

For now, from a team who have served you over the last few years, from Northern Ireland and further afield! Best of luck with the exams and have a great summer.

The Gown Team

Well done Gown team for a hugely successgully year. Two print editions out this year full of news, 'goss' and intrigue.

Good to see a another edition is due out when most students have left Belfast for the summer.

Well done on a spectacular year!

Congratulations on bringing the Gown into the digital era. Before the current Gownies took over the Gown had almost ceased to exist so you have brought it back from the brink. The new team have a platform to build on.

David when do you return to civilisation?

I returned early last week. Very impressed with a lot of the work done on the union.

i thinkte blog is far better than the paper. with such limited print runs it's hard to keep news current - whereas if this was better advertised - well, it could be a queens must-visit!

I for one am impressed with both the website and print issues, good to see in an age of student flipentry there are still those dedicated to achieving something positive from their time at Queens. Well done all concerned. Plus, just picked up the paper - truly excellant and very humourous.

Hmmm I suppose architecture is a matter of taste ;) I like the glass front on the ground floor, which has just become visible in the past few days. I'm not at all sure about the rest of the facade. I suppose I should wait until it's finished, maybe it'll grow on me.

We'd better get used to it anyway, we're tied to it for the next 25 years. I'd like to ask Mary Durkan and Jonny Hill a few questions if I ever see them again.
