Queen's University is located in Kingston
. It was founded in 1842 and is host to a student body of around 11000. It has the smartest freshmen of any Canadian
university, measured by entry grades. Its students are also famous (notorious?) for school spirit.
The University colors are Red, Gold and Blue. The Queen's flag is known as the Tricolour
. The engineering faculties are associated with the color gold, and arts and science with red. Education and medicine use blue.
Queen's university observes a lot of strange customs. One example is the engineering grease pole
. Another is the "Oil Thigh
", a gaelic
chant taught in the first week.
