About Queen’s 175th Anniversary Celebrations
Queen’s University is celebrating its 175th anniversary from May 2016 through to August 2017
Celebrations include a mix of special events, new initiatives and existing activities. This tapestry of activities will showcase the Queen’s of today and tomorrow, as well as the history we are building on – examining our unique legacy, especially the role that the institution and its people have played regionally, nationally and internationally, though research, scholarship, and public service.
Special events so far include the new Richardson Stadium opening (Sept. 17, 2016), the Initiative Campaign close and Homecoming (Oct. 14-16), and a tree dedication at Summerhill to mark the 175th anniversary of the signing of the royal charter (on University Day, Oct. 16).
