QCCC Brings in a New Year!

After days toiling away under the sun at Queen's in the Park and Sidewalk Sale, QCCC is back for another year of fun, laughter, and love. We started off the night "putting together a Rubik's Cube", as we walked around the room with six slips of paper in hand, all sporting a question in the same colour. The goal was to find people holding the five other colours and trade your slip of paper with theirs by asking the question on the paper. Only with six different colour slips in hand do you "complete" the Rubik's cube.

Our next activity had people on their feet, roaring like a T-Rex, crouched like a frog, pawing at the ground like a horse. Everyone wrote down the names of ten animals and then all the sheets were compiled into a bin. Each team had one minute to act out the animal they drew from the bin and try to get as many as possible. A particular love of felines led to a rather impossible acting list involving a Siamese cat, jaguar, African golden cat, lion, and the American bobtail.

Of course, QCCC Open House would not be complete without the tradition of curry fish balls, snacks, and music! We even received surprise visitors from McMaster, a Queen's alumnus, and a University of Toronto alumnus. QCCC is an ever growing family and we're always excited to see new faces join us in our journey through Queen's. We hope that as new and returning members walk with us in this new year, they will all discover the gift it is to find a family away from home. To a new year and new friends!
