IN reference to a paragraph in NATURE (vol. xxix. p. 388) respecting the representation of the students of the College Hall of Residence, Byng Place, on their governing body, allow me to state that the students of Girton College have been represented on the College Committee for some seven years past. The representatives of the students are three in number, one retiring annually; they are elected by those students who hold the college certificate, and have been chosen, so far, from among them selves. As the certificated students keep up a more or less close connection with the College, and their representatives pay regular visits of inspection, the views of past and present students can be formally laid before the College Committee. This privilege is much appreciated by the students. If you have received no other letter to this effect, may I ask you to insert the above information?
