    Favorite thing: The third in the Kingston universities series is St. Lawrence Community College. It provides education and training in applied arts, business, engineering technology, trades, health sciences and
    human studies for individuals, businesses, industry and government.

    Favorite thing: RMC overview photo from their web page.

    RMC is now over one hundred years old. It was established by an act of the Canadian Parliament in 1874 'for the purpose of providing a complete education in all branches of military tactics, fortification, engineering, and general scientific knowledge in subjects connected with and necessary to thorough knowledge of the military profession.' On June 1, 1876, the Military College of Canada opened its doors to the first class of eighteen gentlemen cadets. These are the 'Old Eighteen,' known by name to all cadets today. Two years later, in 1878, Her Majesty, Queen Victoria, granted the College the right to use the prefix 'Royal.'

    I like their red tunics. Wouldn't want to wear one in battle though. It makes too nice a target!!!!

    Favorite thing: Sorry for the bad picture..but this is the Royal Military College. There used to be a RMC in St-Jean-sur-le-Richelieu, Quebec, but the governement decided to close it and make Kingston the only RMC in the country.

    Favorite thing: Queen's University, in spite of the name's implication ,is not a university devoted to transvestites!! (Please forgive me! I couldn't resist!!!) It's a research university granting undergraduate and graduate degrees in arts and science, business, education, law, health sciences, engineering, and theology. It has 13,000 full-time and 3,000 part-time students, and judging from the group of them I saw in the Kingston streets on a Friday evening, they're a very cool lot.

    They were every where, all over town, looking as though they were all having the grandest time. I was immediatley impressed by Kingston and wished (A) I was a college kid again, and (B) I had more time to stay and explore this very interesting city.

    The universities add an enormous depth to the attractive town center. Do, by all means, visit Kingston when you are in the neighborhood!

    And once again, PLEASE forgive the transvestites comment above. I was JUST KIDDING around !!! :)
