As Queensborough Community College’s annual grassroots, student fundraiser for scholarships, Walk to Aspire gives future students the Edge for Success. Each year students, faculty and staff organize themselves into teams and fundraise, culminating in a celebration where students walk 2 miles on the QCC Track. Established in 2007, the Walk to Aspire scholarships provide an opportunity for students in good academic standing to attend Queensborough.

It also allows QCC to reach out to the people of Queens and its surroundings with world-class programs, exhibits and lectures that enrich our community. The is the primary fundraiser for Queensborough Community College.

The Barnes & Noble Student Impact Team consists of dedicated Queensborough Community College students who make time to volunteer because they feel it is important to give back to their school. Their goal is to meet donors, express their appreciation and to encourage continued giving so that other students may benefit from the same generosity.
Queensborough Community College Barnes & Noble Student Impact Team students have a strong desire for public service and agree to participate in training sessions and various special events, such as the Donor Appreciation Reception, President’s Circle Roundtables, the Partners for Progress Gala, and Borough Hall testimonies as representatives of the entire student body of Queensborough. They get involved in all preparations for special events including but not limited to public speaking.
We invite students to become members of the Queensborough Barnes & Noble Student Impact team and become part of the Queensborough extracurricular community.
Motivated students should call Ronni Weprin, Special Events Coordinator at 718-281-5510
