A Part of History

The Alma Mater Society (AMS) is the oldest student association in Canada. It has been the central student organization at Queen’s since 1858. Originally a debating society, the AMS progressively gained responsibilities for student affairs and became self-governing. Today, the AMS serves students and advocates their interests to the University and all levels of government.

The AMS acts as a service, advocacy, and governing body on behalf of all Queen's students and members who have opted-in to their AMS Membership Fee. Illustration of a document.
