Why Queens? Well it has awesome facilities - especially for drama. Also I liked the feel of the college - the fact that it is made up of a number of smaller, different-looking courts instead of one massive imposing court like at Kings. It feels like a mini village
Its also pretty central and close to a lot of lectures for me, and also I thought it would be useful for me to have college tutors that specialize in subjects I think I will need most help in - biological anthropology, for example. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/May_Ball
"Annual balls are held by Clare, Darwin, Hughes Hall, Jesus, St Edmund's, Robinson, Trinity and St.John's; while Magdalene, Pembroke, Emmanuel, Corpus Christi, Christ's, Downing, Gonville and Caius, Homerton, Newnham, Queens', Sidney Sussex and St Catharine's hold May Balls every two years."
The last 3 balls held by Queens - Florence and the machine, The Klaxons, Kaiser chiefs!
