Club Awards

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.
