Happy Eightieth Birthday, Queens College!

Wednesday, October 11th, marks 80 years to the day that Queens College first opened its doors to the class of 1941. It would have been earlier, but a strike by painters forced the college to delay opening for about a month. An early article about the college in the New York Times notes that President Paul Klapper told the students, “We are the pioneers in a new institution. It has no history to look back to, but it can look forward to progress.” And what progress the college has made. To learn more about the achievements of QC students and faculty over the last 80 years, go to qc.cuny.edu/80. And to read Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Special Proclamation in celebration of the college’s decades of achievements, click here.

Calling All Alumni: Share Your Memories with Us!

We always enjoy hearing from our alumni but we would especially love to hear from you during our 80th Anniversary year. Do you have a story about how a favorite professor changed your life, or about a classmate who went on to do great things? Do you have pictures from your years on campus? Please send stories and photos to alumni@qc.cuny.edu and we will share them in our newsletters, magazine, and on social media.
