Queens is bursting with events, activities and seminars that fill the calendar. Many are traditions that students look forward to each year. Here's a list of selected events that showcase what campus life is all about:
Boar's Head Banquet and Yule Log Ceremony
We celebrate the holiday season with medieval songs, festivities, and food. The Queens community gathers to feast and to be entertained by the Queens University Dance Ensemble, Chamber Singers, and appearances from staff and faculty adorned in medieval attire. All carol as the Yule Log is carried to the bonfire in a dramatic ceremony.
Possibly the most popular event of the year. A formal attire event with music, dancing, and real casino games galore.
Weekly worship service is celebrated Thursdays from 11:15-11:45am in the Belk Chapel. All members of the Queens community are invited to attend this simple service that often features the Gospel Choir, student musicians, speakers from off-campus, and a sharing of joys and concerns.
Learn how to get 'connected' at Queens through a week long display of information and fairs. Representatives from student organizations, Greek Life, the Health and Wellness Center, the Academic Resource Center, and Spiritual Life will be on hand to discuss opportunities and answer questions.
Exam Break Breakfast
Enjoy late night bacon, eggs, grits, pastries, and pancakes cooked and served by your favorite professors and staff members the night before exams begin. Come out for games, prizes, and possibly a guest appearance or two!
Parents and families are invited to enjoy the Queens campus, meet faculty, staff and friends, enjoy sporting events, and take in special on-campus programs.
Students and alumni gather to enjoy a week of fun and celebration brought to you by Student Government and Campus Union Board. Come cheer the Royals men's and women's basketball teams and take in an after-game party with a DJ or local band.
Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
Sponsored by Multicultural Affairs and Student Activities, this celebration is much more than a day of recognition. It is marked with education, celebration, and service.

Room in the Inn
Celebrate the beginning of the holiday season with a Moravian Fellowship service. Join the Queens community in Belk Chapel to share in traditional Moravian fare, a candle lighting ceremony, and carols.
