Newcomers' Coffee

Attend the Newcomers’ Coffee/Tea, in Wolfe Hall at PUMC on the first Friday of meeting months at 9:30 AM. You will find us just past the coffee / tea stations.

Join us for coffee or hot tea, meet fellow scholars and make new friends who share common interests.

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 2022-2023 academic year a block of 10 meals may be purchased at the discounted rate of $111.87 at Chartwells’ office. Chartwells’ office is located in the lower level of Trexler Student Center, across the hall from the mailroom and downstairs from Young Dining Hall.

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