John Arrastia

I came to Cambridge at the suggestion of a Professor who was visiting the US. I borrowed the funds to study there. What appealed to me at Jesus was that it was so inclusive and embracing. I played golf with the Porters and rugby with the staff.  I dined with the other students, socialised with the Fellows, danced with the Master’s wife, and really got to know people. My friends and colleagues were engineers, doctors, politicians, religious scholars, undergrads, lawyers, professors – basically every stripe of humanity one could find. I appreciated Jesus because of that community. Before the internet, and iPhones, and streaming chats, instead of feeling isolated, Jesus College was home.

I think it is important to give a hand up to those who follow. By donating to Jesus, I can make a difference to someone’s life.

Join John in giving back to Jesus College.
