Please note that the correct spelling of Queens' College is exactly that, with the apostrophe after the 's'. This is due to it be founded twice by two different queens, Margaret of Anjou and Elizabeth Woodville.
Hence the standard Queens' chant:
"Q, U, double E, N, S, Apos-tro-phe, Gooooo Queens'."
