Opened in the fall of 2017, the Veterans Center was made possible by a grant gifted by Home Depot and Student Veterans of America. The lounge is available for students to study, collaborate, or hang out between classes.
"The sense of family at Queens is perfect for a veteran like me. Queens has the amazing access to job connections and the business world. I don't know of any other school that so successfully combines its small size and intimate campus with opportunities of such significant meaning and scope." -Chris Rolph '18, Air Force
QU4Troops is Queens' official Student Veterans Association group committed to building community among military members as they transition back to school.

Salute is the Veterans National Honor Society that recognizes all your hard work and dedication.
Last year, Queens helds its inaugural Dog Tag Dash, a team obstacle course that focuses on bringing together veterans and the community in an impactful way. QU4Troops hosted General Peter Pace and a crowd of servicemen and women for a leadership luncheon. Our military students also attended a conference in Florida to meet with other military-friendly institutions to make our sense of community even more robust.
