Fraternity & Sorority Life

We affirm the Queens ties, established at our founding in 1857, with the Presbyterian Church (USA). This tradition has rooted core values such as service, intellectual curiosity, and commitment to the common good in Queens’ institutional culture. This pluralistic approach lies at the heart of the transformative educational experience Queens provides. Learn more about how you can nurture and deepen your spiritual life!

When you come to Queens, you join over 165 years of campus activities and traditions. There are no stale traditions at Queens like those you might find at other historic schools; instead, ours are fun! You will get a sense of both the past and present with these activities and events.
