Welcome Table

Every Friday, beginning at 9:30 a.m., grab a cup of coffee or tea AND a tasty donut hole and stop by the Welcome (aka donut) Table at any meeting in Wolfe Hall.

Members of the Marketing Committee want to meet/make introductions for new and longstanding members, field your questions and provide info about volunteer opportunities.

Lunch Bunch

Lunch Bunch is a gathering of Senior Scholars, after our Friday speaker’s talk, at a nearby restaurant.  It’s a great way to make new friends and enjoy old friends.  

Sign up (look for it in our Event page) and join us for Lunch Bunch which meets once per month (usually the fourth Friday of the month)* at 11:45 AM. Table size varies per restaurant but you will sit with maybe 6 or 8 other members which is a great size to get to know your fellow Scholars. 

*Exceptions: the months of May, June, July, August, September, November and December.


Attend the winter and spring luncheons (celebrating the holidays in December and spring in June). 

Watch for announcements during our weekly speaker meetings and on our Events page. 

They provide an opportunity to meet and mingle with fellow members.

Discuss your favorite speaker or who you would like to hear in the future.

Queens University

Queens welcomes Senior Scholars to campus with designated parking off Wellesley Avenue and discounts on lunch in Young Dining Hall of the Trexler Student Center.

Parking is available in the Practice Field Lot, designated with the orange F on this Queens Campus Map. Senior Scholars should visit Watkins Hall (blue 15 on the campus map) to get a parking pass from Campus Police (at the east entrance to Watkins Hall near the Diana Statue). Campus map link below.

For the 2023-2024 academic year a block of 10 meals may be purchased at the discounted rate of $121.04 ($12.10 per meal)  at the Chartwell office in Morrison Hall.  Other block amounts are available up to 100 meals and provide additional discounts.  

Chartwells’ office is located in the lower level of Trexler Student Center, across the hall from the mailroom and downstairs from Young Dining Hall.

Senior Scholars who have university ID cards (Q-cards) with meals remaining may use those until they expire, but going forward Chartwells will use disposable meal cards.

Queens ID cards are reserved for students, faculty, and staff who need after-hours access to buildings.

Queens University Resources – Subject to certain restrictions, Queens University offers discounts or limited access to University resources such as academic courses (auditing only), sporting event, food services, and library materials.
