Student Clubs

With approximately 450 student clubs to choose from, you can easily enhance what you learn in the classroom and give you the chance to embrace your passions. More than 100 cultural and ethnic student clubs and organizations foster diversity and cultural engagement on campus. Below are AMS (Alma Mater Society) clubs that may be of interests for students of Chinese:

Name Description
Kung-Fu Club Focus of the Chinese art of Kung Fu, and specifically Danny Xuan’s system of Wing Chun. Members will be taught this exclusive style through drills, forms, chi sao, sparring and rolling hands. Participants will learn effective self-defense. Concepts from Tai Chi and Chi Kung will also be included for strengthening of body and mind.
Queen's Chinese Students' Association Queen's Chinese Students' Association (QCSA) represents the Chinese community within the Queen’s student body as well as the Kingston community.  It is a cultural club that hosts events throughout the school year to foster friendship, to strengthen the ties between the school and the community, and to educate, inform, and promote Chinese culture.
Great Panda Society Our club aims to produce a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere that embraces students of all ethnicities who are interested in Chinese culture as well as socializing. Our club serves as not only a social group for entertainment but also a bridge that links Chinese and Western culture. We achieve this in our multi ethnicity club by providing information and knowledge of our ancient country to non-Chinese students through interactive activities, and helping the new Chinese international students to overcome culture shock and fell at home in Canada as soon as possible. Our goal is to form cross-cultural bonds and friendships while spreading Chinese culture.
Queen’s Hong Kong Students’ Association Queen’s Hong Kong Students’ Association is a cultural club established under the AMS here at Queen’s. Founded in 1999, QHKSA’s main objective is to create awareness of Hong Kong heritage at Queen’s and to foster better understanding between Hong Kong and other cultures within the community. We promote the Hong Kong culture, which is a marriage of the rich, Chinese heritage to the sophisticated English tradition, and offer students the opportunity to share their cultural similarities and to enhance friendships.
World Languages Club The World Languages Club hosts cultural and discussion events that bring together students of a common linguistic background and/or interest, regardless of concentration. The majority of our events are nights dedicated to one language (determined by popular demand) with a cultural theme (for example, Oktoberfest for German; Lunar New Year for Chinese).
