New events and familiar favourites give alumni a reason to reminisce about their alma mater at weeklong festivities
It was a Homecoming to remember.
From Bison football’s thrilling victory to the elegant Chancellor’s Tea, there was a lot to enjoy at Homecoming this year.
Adding to the excitement of the Bisons’ win was the celebration at halftime recognizing the University of Manitoba Student Union (UMSU) commitment of $15.9 million to the Front and Centre campaign in front of more than 1900 boisterous fans.
What followed was equally as exciting as David Barnard, president and vice-chancellor at the University of Manitoba, announced that in recognition of UMSU’s commitment, University Centre will henceforth be known as UMSU University Centre.
With UMSU’s support, the campaign hit a massive milestone. From a total of 25,895 donors, $409,367,522 has been raised to date.
