Dear Members of the Queen’s Community,

It is a great pleasure for me to welcome you to

Queen’s Homecoming 2015. Homecoming weekend

provides a wonderful opportunity for us to

reconnect and share memories, make new friends,

expand our networks, and celebrate the spirit that

makes Queen’s unique. This year is a particularly

special one for me, as I am marking my own 35th

reunion. I am very much looking forward to

reconnecting with my classmates.

I hope you will enjoy everything we have planned for you this year: from a

variety of sports events, and tours and performances at our stunning new Isabel

Bader Centre for the Performing Arts, to receptions with the deans of your home

faculties or schools. I hope you will take time to meet and engage with our

current students, whether it’s at the Queen’s Student Alumni Association Spirit

Corner, the AMS ReUnion Street Festival, or while enjoying breakfast at Leonard

Hall Cafeteria.

I would be remiss if I didn’t also take this opportunity to stress that it is critically

important that we all work together to ensure that Homecoming 2015 is a safe and

respectful event on all fronts. With that in mind, I want to thank everyone who has

been involved in planning and executing this year’s celebration, including our

alumni, faculty, staff, students, and many volunteers.

There is a great deal to look forward to over Homecoming weekend. Whether you

are celebrating your 5th, 25th, 50th reunion, or beyond, we’re very glad you’re here.

I know you already have many fond memories of your time at Queen’s, and I hope

Homecoming 2015 will provide you with lots of opportunities to create new ones.

Welcome home to Queen’s!

Sincerely,

Daniel R. Woolf, Artsci’80

On behalf of the Queen’s University

Alumni Association (QUAA), I’d like to

welcome all of the alumni and their

guests who have arrived on campus to celebrate

Homecoming 2015! Many of you have travelled

long distances to rekindle friendships, memories,

and connections, and I hope that your weekend at

Queen’s, and in the city of Kingston, feels as much

like coming Home for you as it does for those of us

who live here all year round.

The renowned “Queen’s Spirit” is on vibrant display this weekend as we alumni

connect with current students, reminisce with our Faculties, Schools, and past

professors, engage in the Kingston community, and of course, reunite with one

another.

Another important aspect of Homecoming is celebrating the remarkable

contributions you, Queen’s alumni, make year-round, worldwide. Take the

time this weekend to really consider how your contributions, and those of

your classmates, have impacted the life and health of this university and

the communities beyond Queen’s – and will continue to in the future!

Next year, our university celebrates its 175th. I hope you’ll consider participating

in many of the events in the coming year to celebrate these milestones. Keep in

touch and visit queensu.ca/connect/175 to hear of developing plans.

I encourage you to contact me if you’re interested in learning more about the

Queen’s Alumni Association and its mission, which is “to reach out and foster a

lifelong association with Queen’s, to engage our members in the life and work

of the University, and to serve the alumni community in all its diversity.” There

are many different ways that you can get involved – visit our website, like us on

Facebook, follow me on Twitter, or drop us a line any time!

Cha Gheill!!

Dear Queen’s alumni, family and friends,

As a proud Queen’s graduate myself, I am very pleased to welcome
