The celebratory weekend featured telescope demos, stress-free degrees and blue skies
Under blue skies, thousands of alumni reconnected with old friends across all three campuses at Spring Reunion, May 25 to 29.
The weekend featured dozens of events for alumni young and old, including, for the first time, a kids’ program for future grads (children of alumni from ages four to 12), complete with telescope demonstrations and practice digs at the Archaeology Centre.
While many of the events were primarily social, plenty of grads signed up for the Stress-Free Degree – attending talks on subjects ranging from art nouveau to nutrition and the future of computing.
Honoured alumni graduated in a year ending in a “1” or a “6”; special medal ceremonies were held for those marking their 55th to 75th anniversaries. Celebrating their 75th, from the Class of 1941, were Constance Upton, who earned her degree in occupational therapy, and Jack Carr, a graduate of engineering.
