Queen’s University announced today the naming of the Dan School of Drama and Music, in honour of Aubrey and Marla Dan and their donation of $5 million to the school.

The W.J Barnes teaching excellence award of the Arts & Science Undergraduate Society is considered the highest tribute the Society can pay to an individual for teaching excellence. The award is presented to deserving members of the Faculty of Arts and Science who have made a significant contribution to teaching.

This year's recipient of the award is Laura Carlson from the Department of History.  Laura has gone above and beyond in educating and engaging with her students throughout this year.

Congratulations Laura!

Peer-Assisted Learning Workshop with Dr. James Fraser, Department of Physics, Engineering Physics and Astronomy, Queen’s University

Date: Wednesday, April 6, 1:30-3:00 pm

Location: Ellis Hall, Room 319

The questions don’t get any bigger than the ones probed by faculty and students in Stirling Hall:

  • Where do we come from?
  • How did the universe evolve?
  • What is it made of?
  • And why, according to the laws of physics, does the world work the way it does?

On this day (March 7) 174 years ago, classes began under Peter Colin Campbell, the first professor hired by Queen’s who taught classical literature, and Thomas Liddell, Queen’s founding principal and professor of divinity.

This moment is one of several university “firsts” associated with the Department of Classics. During the university’s 175th anniversary in 2016-17, professors and students plan to highlight the foundational role the classics department has played in the university’s history.
