Description:

First Class Day celebrates the anniversary of the first class of students being admitted to Queen's University on March 7, 1842.  This took place during the university's first Senate meeting on the same date and involved 13 students who wanted to begin their studies standing before the Senate, which consisted of the principal and two professors, for examination.  Ten students passed and three were invited to stay and continue to study with tutors.  The university's first classes were held at 67 Colborne Street, just north of Queen Street in between Barrie and Clergy streets.
