Grace Meng (D-Queens) honored Queens College by presenting its President, Félix V. Matos Rodríguez, with a Congressional Record that commemorates the school’s 80th anniversary.

The anniversary recognition, which was written and entered into the Congressional Record by Meng, highlights the college’s beginnings, and pays tribute to its accomplishments and success.

“Queens College is an outstanding institution and an exceptional asset to the borough of Queens,” said Meng. “The college has received much well-deserved praise and recognition, and continues to be a trailblazing beacon of higher education. Just recently, the Chronicle of Higher Education ranked Queens College 10th in the nation among public colleges that help students achieve upward social and economic mobility, and the Center for World University Rankings placed the college among the top five percent of almost 28,000 degree-granting institutions world-wide. I’m proud to honor the school’s 80th anniversary and look forward to another 80 years of great success. I also look forward to continuing to work with all the outstanding faculty and staff that make the Queens College community grow and thrive.”

The Congressional Record is the official record of the proceedings of the United States Congress.

Queens College, which is located in Meng’s Congressional district, celebrated its 80th anniversary in October.
