- EXPLORE QUEENS
Transfer students who are enrolling at Queens College for fall 2014 and who have been admitted are encouraged to sign up for a Transfer Advising Workshop, hosted by the Academic Advising Center. Attending a Transfer Advising Workshop provides students with valuable information about the kinds of transfer credits they are receiving, remaining degree requirements at Queens College, as well as initial planning for a student’s intended major. Transfer Advising Workshops are held throughout the end of the spring semester and over the summer.
How can you sign up to attend a Transfer Advising Workshop?
Soon after your acceptance to Queens College, students will receive an email from the Undergraduate Admissions Office regarding the submission of commitment deposit and immunization documentation. Once your commitment deposit is received by the Admissions Office, you will receive further information via your Queens College email account that will include a link directing you to sign up for a Transfer Advising Workshop.
New and recent Queens College transfers!
We invite you to attend an informational workshop/lunch session on Monday February 24th, during free hour (12:15-1:30pm) in the President’s Conference Room in Rosenthal Library (5th floor). This session is part of the Transfer Student Info Series, and is titled: “Getting the Inside Scoop at Queens College.”
This session will introduce new transfer students to different aspects of the student experience and to point you in the right direction when you have questions that your department or program can’t answer. In addition to learning from presenters, you will get a chance for Q&A, play a fun trivia game to learn more about QC, eat a free lunch, and meet other students at QC!

At the QC Voices website, undergraduate and graduate students at Queens College are posting about their lives, interests, and communities. Student Elena Caban writes about her experiencing and re-experiencing 5 Pointz in Long Island City:
I’ve been riding the 7 train since I was a little girl. I’ve sat, content, between grandparents; I’ve stood, I’ve swayed; I’ve looked out over a ripe, yet jagged borough and I’ve lost myself, as I am so prone. It wasn’t, however, until I was accepted to Queens College that I began, however tentatively, to understand the art of 5 Pointz.
5 Pointz is art in an urban place – it is an art of the everyday. Since 1994, artists of all stripes have worked in and on 5 Pointz, a sprawling outdoor art exhibition space. Over the years, it has become an artistic hub, an institution – a central, yet wonderfully strange component of Long Island City’s otherwise dour skyline. And indeed, out from a charred landscape it appears like a bruise, a defiant mark. Faces, mythical creatures, graffiti, poetry – all of this, and more, was always visible to me from my rocking vantage point. But I didn’t see it.
Or I saw it, but didn’t understand. To tell the truth, I did not consider myself an artist until about 2 years ago; I guess I am a late bloomer. And indeed, I did not lose myself in 5 Pointz until that day, last April, on which I looked, with new eyes, into that landscape.
QC Voices is a mixture of the lives of New Yorkers. How they experience sports, shopping, and the cutthroat world of buying textbooks. Read these and more at QC Voices.
Hosted by the Division of Math & Natural Sciences, undergraduate students will be presenting research on October 8th in the Student Union Ballroom.
The event includes a poster session (9:30am-1:30pm) with students presenting their current research, with videos on display of student and faculty research. In the afternoon, students give oral presentations (1:30pm-2:30pm). The event is free and open to the public.
Students who are interested in research are encouraged to attend. More information on this event can be found here.
