Welcoming New and Transfer Students
and also President Félix Matos Rodríguez to Campus!
Each year, members of the administration lead a March Through The Gate ceremony, Queens College’s way of welcoming new and transfer students to campus. This year they were accompanied by the Drum Café, a group of South African style drummers playing traditional djembe drums, dancers performing South African style dance, and stilt walkers, all dressed in South African costume. Drum Café led the way for 150 Queens College students who merged into the South African ambience as they walked across campus. The dancing and drumming swelled into a “drumming flash mob,” officially launching the Year of South African on campus!
