My youngest daughter just finished her last day of classes at Queen’s undergrad. She’s sold the furniture from the room at her student house. She’s studying for exams and preparing to move on to her next adventure. Across campus, many Queen’s students will soon say goodbye to this special place. I thought I’d write a few notes for my daughter and share them here, hoping some others might find them useful.
A name can hold power and purpose. A sense of identity. A sense of responsibility. As we move ahead in 2022 under the new banner of Queen’s Health Sciences, I’m thinking about what that name change represents – why it was important.
