Clubs make unique and important contributions to the Queen’s community. The work that they do ranges from activities that make university feel like home, to giving back to the community, locally or globally; and much more. Each year, the Queen’s Clubs Office recognizes several clubs for their contributions and successes on campus and in the community.
Club of the Year is awarded to the club that has exemplified the spirit of Queen’s and the clubs community through performing at an exceptional level.
New Club of the Year is awarded to the club that has exemplified the spirit of Queen’s and the clubs community through performing at an exceptional level during their first year of operations.
Event of the Year recognizes an exceptional event or recurring event that a club has hosted.
