President Barnard speaking with alumni at the Chancellors Tea

Many memories made at Homecoming 2016

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.
