Class of 1974


Samwise sat tapping the hilt of his sword as if he were counting on his fingers, and looked up at the sky. “It is very strange,” he murmured. “I am certain we’d only been a month or two on the way, when up pops another reunion as bright as a new penny, as if we stayed no time at all in the outside world.”   Aragorn said, “So it is Sam. In that land you lost your count. Time there flowed swiftly by us, as for the Elves.  While we tarried, several years passed us thence.  Afore ye know it, Science ’74 will return in 2014.”

Guests Attending


Because of some remarkable planning (back in 2004!), we will have a limited number of rooms reserved for Sc ‘74 at the Donald Gordon Centre, just across the road from Richardson Stadium. That will offer some interesting possibilities for a breakfast warm-up!  Information will be provided in the Spring of 2014 about the DGC and how to reserve your room there or elsewhere in Kingston.

Class Giving:

Science ’74 is amongst the more generous alumni from Queen’s.  In 2005, we endowed the “Traditions in Leadership” fund in our class name so that current Queen’s students could benefit from the experiences outside the classroom that were so much  a part of our learning while at Queen’s.  This fund provides discretionary funding to the Dean in support of student-led initiatives and projects and currently exceeds $140 thousand.

Our objective is to reach 100% participation from our graduating class by the time we reach our 50th anniversary reunion in 2024.  We think this is an achievable target and one in which everyone can participate.  Large or small – not matter the size of your gift, it will make a difference!
