John P. Downey, Ph.D., Dean of Students
Welcome to Queens University of Charlotte Campus Life! People who visit our wonderful section tend to fall into one of three categories:
- Random Surfers - Perhaps you have googled some topic and found yourself landed on our page hoping to learn more about an important topic. It is my hope you spend your time wisely on this site and find all you need. However, I also hope you are not spending all your time surfing the internet when you should be spending time with family and friends. If so, please shut off your computer and go hug your children or call your mom.
- Procrastinators - Perhaps you are a current Queens' student wandering aimlessly on the Queens web site and have stumbled upon our page and are so bored you are actually reading the Dean's introduction (get a life!). If so, please get back to work. The fate of Western Civilization hinges on your mastering the course material you are so persistently avoiding.
- Engaged Learners - Perhaps you are a current or prospective student (or parent, faculty member, or staff member) who is interested in learning more about the wide array of programs and services provided for students as part of our Student Life Program. If so, have we got a site for you! Please read on. . .
The 'Life on Campus' section of the web provides a snapshot of the offerings you can experience during your years as a Queens' student - both on and off campus. Student Life is comprised of the Dean of Students Office and four departments of Student Life: Health and Wellness Services; Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement; Housing and Residence Life; and Student Engagement. We strive to take your learning and enjoyment to another level outside of the classroom. I encourage you to explore the resources available to you as a student, as well as activities, organizations and opportunities to serve. Queens is a vibrant and amazing place to call 'home.'
Should you have any questions or suggestions, I encourage you to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Now, if you are procrastinating from your academic work - get back to the books!
Yours in Good Humor,
John P. Downey, Ph.D.
