Student Sound Offs
"Limestone buildings covered in ivy, the neoclassical architecture of the new library, the view of the lake, all contribute to the beauty of the campus, and the general feel of academic performance."
"We are all proud to be Queen's students and there is a real sense of community on campus; I feel like I have one really big family!"
"Great party school, great parties, nice people."
"There are days when I feel like I'm inside a giant frat party. The school spirit can be a bit too much at times."
"Queens is the only school in Canada with an entirely student-run judiciary system that arbitrates non-academic discipline."
"I've had more than two dozen professors in the last three years, and I'd gladly take another course with any of them. There is a real quality in teaching, and strength in scholarship with so many professors here."
"The best thing about going to Queen's is the fact that my degree will say that I went to Queen's."
"Job opportunities on campus are fantastic if you need help financing your education. Because many students are employed by the student government, the hours are flexible."
"Kingston... is a beautiful, vibrant city and a pleasure to live in."
"The school tends to attract snobby rich people, who ... are extremely annoying and rather full of themselves."
"[I like the] opportunities for diverse out-of-classroom experiences; at Queen's I've had the chance to study abroad, do field courses, field trips and use the community around us for studies and research."
