You're the MILK to our COOKIES!
Over the new few weeks student callers will be reaching out to alumni on behalf of the Queens Fund.
I encourage you to ask about campus news and events, professors or life at Queens. By taking the time to speak with these students and share your Queens memories with them, you help them feel connected to the pride and tradition that has remained strong throughout Queens' 157-year history. Please be sure to ask your student caller about the path he or she plans to follow post-graduation. We know you will be proud of the many ways your alma mater has helped prepare these talented young men and women to meet - and make - the future.
As we work to maintain and enhance the quality educational environment you remember from your time on campus, I hope you will consider making a gift to the Queens Fund. If you would like to give before you receive a call, you may donate at www.queens.edu/give.
Queens students and alumni- they complement each other like milk and cookies! One tastes so much better with the other, and we hope that you will help make the Queens experience even sweeter for current and future students by supporting the Queens Fund.

The Department of World Languages and the Center for Latino Studies present "Ixcanul" (translates roughly to "volcano" in the Mayan dialect of Kaqchikel). The plot underlines the conflict between a mother who wants to marry her daughter to a man she does not like. The young woman would prefer to run away with a boy she likes, and both of them would like to immigrate to the United States eventually. The film evidences the young woman's confrontation with the modern world-a plot point that is based on the real-life, ongoing exploitation of indigenous people in Guatemala. View Event
