Alumni Day Celebrations

The university’s Energy Systems and Nuclear Science Research Centre was a buzz on Saturday, October 14 as alumni, staff, students and family members came together to celebrate Alumni Day.

Current undergraduate students from all faculties shared their brilliant ideas to make the world a better place with posters and discussions about their research discoveries.

Applause echoed the halls as a guest speaker, Samantha Hazell, Electrical Engineering, class of 2011, took the stage with an empowering speech that reminded us all, that we can be resilient in the face of adversity.

The Alumni Association Council also held its Annual General Meeting reporting to members their achievements this year and exciting opportunities for future engagement.  It was also an opportunity to recognize successful alumni with three prestigious awards.

Congratulations to award winners:

  • Samantha Hazell, Electrical Engineering, class of 2011 – Achievement Award
  • Vahid Anwari, Health Science, class of 2016 – Up and Coming Award
  • Benjamin Earle, Master of Arts, Criminology, class of 2016 – Philanthropic Award

Following the day’s events, attendees made their way to the Campus Ice Centre to cheer on our Women’s hockey team as they took the ice against Queen's University.

The day was a great success and we thank all who attended!
