    AD{TS4434909} editor’s letter I’LL NEVER FORGET THE FIRST TIME I HEARD THE WORD TOWNIE. New to the city, I was having lunch with a friend in a downtown sushi restaurant when I overheard two students talking about a recent experience at another local establishment. “He was a townie,” one said to the other. The negativity was blatant. At the time, I had no context for such a comment. Where I attended university, there was little separation between students and the broader population of the city. When I left campus, I ate at the same restaurants, used the same services and rode the same subway as other people living in Toronto. In Kingston, it didn’t take long before I detected the prevalent “us versus them” attitude among students at Queen’s and the broader community. It also didn’t take long for me to develop some of the same sentiments. From having offensive language directed at me while passing through the neighbourhood near campus, to walking over the shameful deposits of red Solo cups on Brock Street, I began to develop the sense these students were to the city like bad tenants are to landlords. Since then, my opinion has changed. In the five years I’ve lived in Kingston, the university — and its students — have proven to be one of our best attributes. Along with those from St. Lawrence and Royal Military colleges, the student population in our city injects youth into an otherwise aging population. Queen’s University adds diversity and culture, and attracts some of the brightest minds to Kingston. The city has derived countless economic and social benefits from its presence, and institutions such as Innovation Park, the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts and the Agnes Etherington Art Centre would not exist without it. Some of our most engaged citizens are also students, many of whom work hard to connect with the community despite calling it home for just a few years. I take tremendous pride in the prestige this world-class university lends to our city, and in its students. *** We have dedicated this issue of Kingston Life to mark 175 years of Queen’s University in Kingston. In these pages, you’ll find stories about programs and individuals, such as math professor Lynda Colgan (Personality, page 13), who are working to bridge the gap between the university and the city. Our features (A City of Opportunity? page 20, and Great Divide, page 26), examine some of the challenges — and opportunities — that still exist in shaping our future. We would love to hear your thoughts on anything you read in this issue of Kingston Life. Find us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, send us an email or write us at 6 Cataraqui St., Kingston, Ont., K7L 4Z7. For those returning to Kingston, welcome back. Danielle van den Brink dvandenbrink@postmedia.com facebook.com/KingstonLifemag twitter.com/Kingston_Life @kingstonlifemag contributors Writer Anita Jansman discovered just three per cent of students who graduate from Queen’s find jobs in Kingston. She examines whether the city has a brain drain problem in A City of Opportunity? on page 20. Photographer Tim Forbes captured Daniel Woolf, principal and vice-chancellor at Queen’s University for The Reporter (page 16). There, Woolf discusses the future of the university. With the help of Queen’s Archives, writer Kelly Reid looks back at student style throughout the decades.
