The University of Cambridge is the second-oldest university in the English-speaking world and the world's fourth-oldest surviving university. Founded in 1209 and granted a royal charter by King Henry III in 1231, the University has preserved its reputation as one of the best institutions of education in the world. Cambridge is formed from 31 constituent colleges each of which has its own unique history, architecture, customs and traditions. The colleges compete with each other not just in terms of academics but also in athletics. Virtually all students and alumni tend to wear their college colors with pride and thus most colleges enjoy a healthy rivalry with all the other colleges. While the Tompkins table provides a good measure of undergraduate student performance and endowment figures give some indication of the quality of the facilities available, opinion about which college provides the best overall experience vary quite significantly. Here is a list of all 31 colleges of Cambridge with brief descriptions about their history and alumni. Rank these colleges to let us know which ones you think are the best! Source(s): Wikipedia

Churchill College is a constituent college of the University of Cambridge, England. It has a primary focus on science, engineering and technology, but still retains a strong interest in the arts and humanities. In 1958, a trust was established with Sir Winston Churchill as its chairman of trustees, to build and endow a college for 60 fellows and 540 students as a national and Commonwealth memorial to Winston Churchill; its Royal Charter and Statutes were approved by the Queen, in August 1960. It is situated on the outskirts of Cambridge, away from the traditional centre of the city, but close to the University's main new development zone (which now houses the Centre for Mathematical Sciences). Its 16 hectares (40 acres) of grounds make it physically the largest of all the colleges. Churchill was the first all-male college to decide to admit women, and was among three men's colleges to admit its first women students in 1972. Within 15 years all others had followed suit. The college has a reputation for relative informality compared with other Cambridge colleges, and traditionally admits a larger proportion of its undergraduates from state schools. The college motto is "Forward". It was taken from the final phrase of Winston Churchill's first speech to the House of Commons as Prime Minister – his famous "Blood, Toil, Tears and Sweat" speech – in which he said "Come, then, let us go forward together".
