Congratulations, Class of 2014!
I often hear seniors tell me how it seems like their time at Queens has just flown by. Whether you arrived as a new first year student four years ago or a transfer student more recently, I hope you agree your time at Queens has been special. These memories will truly last you a lifetime and as you reflect upon them, it is my wish they will bring a smile upon your face and an appreciation for a high quality educational experience.
As you make plans to embark upon this next chapter of your life, I also hope you will take the time to express your gratitude for those things that make Queens special --excellent faculty, an international experience, career internship, and all our campus traditions. You can help another student continue to enjoy these same experiences by giving back to Queens. The 2014 Senior Class Gift will offer scholarships to needy and worthy current students at Queens. I will match every dollar the senior class offers up to $2014.
Please join me in support of our students by giving what you can to the 2014 Senior Class Gift. You can do so by visiting www.queens.edu/Senior-Class-Gift. Thank you in advance for doing so.
John P. Downey, Ph.D.
Dean of Students
