At the beginning of the 1970s, thousands of Greek students were attending Queens College, in York. We would say, then, that we numbered 3500.
One of the reasons is that
there began, in the 1960s, a great wave of immigrants from Greece to America, many of whom settled in Queens, so even if we weren’t so many, we approached that number.
Queens College, a public College, was then the choice of many students. It offered a very good academic program with low tuition.
