Legacy of Enrichment Studies Unit 

In 1987, the Enrichment Studies Unit (ESU) at Queen’s University began connecting students in grades 5 to 12 to challenging and inspiring Queen’s academics in the dynamic learning and living environment of university life. For nearly 35 years, ESU  honoured and welcomed over 100,000 student visitors while providing leadership and employment opportunities to 1,500+ Queen’s students.  ESU’s inclusive and unmatched mix of opportunities made an unmistakable difference: nurturing curiosity, fostering development, and enriching the potential of all students. 

This recent scale in services will now entail a discontinuation of the well-known ESU programs the Seven Eight Enrichment Days (SEEDs), Enrichment Mini Course (EMC), the Summer Enrichment Experience at Queen’s (SEEQ) and the Five Six Enrichment Days program. 

The Queen’s Event Services team looks forward to enhancing future programming and events that inspire our leaders of tomorrow.
