Queens College’s Relief Effort Continues

Message from President Felix V. Matos Rodriguez

We are living in extraordinary times, and nothing illustrates this better than the series of devastating storms and earthquakes we have recently seen. We all know someone who was profoundly affected by these events. Our hearts go out to the people in Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico, and in much of the Caribbean who lost a loved one, and to the millions who must now rebuild their lives.

Queens College is accepting donations to aid those who are recovering from the recent natural disasters. Monetary donations can be made by check or cash in room 327 of the Student Union or deposited in a secure donation box located at one of the cash registers at the Knights Diner in the Dining Hall. A confirming receipt will be issued for donations made at room 327. Please make checks out to the CUNY Research Foundation and in the memo area, write: Disaster Relief Fund­–Account Number: 78511-00-15.

Queens College is also accepting donations of bottled water for disaster victims. These should be brought to the Student Development and Leadership office, located on the first floor of the Student Union next to Starbucks.

Please also be aware that the CUNY Board of Trustees has voted to allow students from Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands who have relocated to New York to pay in-state tuition for the 2017-18 academic year. Additional information can be found here.

If you are a student who needs assistance coping with these events and would like to talk to someone at the college, I encourage you to get in touch with our Counseling Center at (718) 997-5420. Faculty and staff can contact Deer Oaks (Deer Oaks Employee Assistance Program.

If you have any questions or would like to help, please contact Emanuel Avila, our campus Disaster Relief Coordinator, at or 718-997-3971.
