Queen’s was granted its Royal Charter on October 16, 1841 and later that year, the university established that date as University Day to commemorate the occasion. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, University Day was celebrated with a series of track and field competitions for students (including some traditional Scottish events such as the caber toss) and was a much anticipated date on the university calendar.
