FLUSHING, N.Y. (Jul. 23, 2018) - Homecoming weekend is rapidly approaching and for the 2018 festivities, the Queens College Department of Athletics has decided to focus on re-engaging our alumni from a holistic approach. Our objective is to recruit alumni back to campus, celebrate their legacy and educate them on ways they can become more involved—i.e. increasing alumni engagement surrounding student-athlete support and future alumni events. Together with Queens College President Felix Matos Rodriguez and the Alumni Relations Office, the Knights are offering several wonderful Homecoming events this season beginning with the Queens College Athletics Alumni Reunion on Oct. 14.
The event will begin at 11 a.m. on that Sunday with the Knights reunion brunch followed by an afternoon of alumni games beginning at 1 p.m. In cooperation with this event, the Queens College Department of Athletics is committed to re-engaging our alumni and providing them with the best opportunities possible to be more engaged and to re-connect with the college and fellow alums. With this in mind, the department is announcing the re-launching of a brand-new Queens College Athletics Alumni Facebook page; this will be a place to look back at fond memories from our archives and an interactive spot to contribute memories of your own to help us create a more vibrant community on our social media platforms.
The department is also announcing the temporary hiatus and halt of the annual Hall of Fame induction ceremony until 2019. This will allow for a more concerted effort to make this event bigger and better than it ever has been before and will also allow for the ceremony to take place at home, at Queens College. Bringing the Hall of Fame induction ceremony and reception back to campus will represent a return to its original intimate setting and provide Hall of Famers with the ability to reminisce on their glory days here at Queens with their friends, family and fellow Hall of Fame inductees.
Despite the Hall of Fame ceremonies not being held this year, we hope to see as many of our alumni at our Alumni Reunion on the Queens College campus on Oct. 14 as possible.
In order to make these events a success, WE NEED YOUR HELP. Please help us spread the word! RSVP for the Athletics Alumni Reunion today!
