Honoured Faculty of Science Alumni Awards Celebration

February 2, 2017 — 

On Thursday, January 26th, the Faculty of Science celebrated seven outstanding alumni at the second annual Alumni Awards event. The reception included an opportunity to connect with the honoured guests, refreshments, and a live jazz duo from the Desautels Faculty of Music. The former students, one from each of the seven Faculty of Science departments, participated in a panel discussion on the different paths a science degree can take you down.

The event was a huge success, with many faculty, both current and former, students, and family members helping dean Stefi Baum in celebrating these amazing U of M alumni.
