Happy 84TH Birthday Queens College!

Happy Birthday, QC! Eighty-four years ago this week—on October 11, 1937—Queens College welcomed its first 400 students, evenly divided between men and women. The Alumni Relation’s office was honored to be in touch with Evelyn Puccini Rolleri ’41, a member of the college’s 1st graduating class, who celebrated her 80th reunion this year.

For the 30th consecutive year, Queens College made Princeton Review’s list of the nation’s best colleges. Princeton Review cited QC for offering high quality academics for a reasonable price and described the student body as both diverse and friendly.

Queens College released its Strategic Plan in 2021, redefining its mission and establishing goals to be carried out through 2026. The plan aims to prepare students to serve as innovative leaders in a diverse world that they make more equitable and inclusive. A key part of the strategic plan is the establishment of dedicated Business and Arts Schools.

In support of the Business and Arts schools, the ASK (Alumni Sharing Knowledge) program invites QC alumni to virtually engage with QC students.

Share your professional profile by emailing us at alumni@qc.cuny.edu and join our list of prospective virtual guests.

Let’s all work towards building more QC spirit and community as we get closer to QC’s 85th birthday celebration in October 2022. We can help you reconnect with a student club, student organization or sports team near and dear to your heart.

The alumni network is here for you and current students through all phases of life.

We wish everyone good health and success in your future endeavors.

Senior Director
