The Alumni Office tie-dyed SMU Huskies Unleashed t-shirts for our many Halifax Pride Parade participants. Our float also won “best theme,” making this our second award-winning year!
We had our 41st annual golf tournament this August at Granite Springs. Our tournament was sold out again this year and we were happy to award 21 students with bursaries at the tournament.
We hosted a food drive here on campus to support the SMU Community Food Room. A number of departments participated and we were able to fill the shelves to overflowing.
In June we hosted alumni receptions in both Vancouver and Calgary. Our Enactus team competed at the Nationals in Vancouver and took home the 3M Canada Award. We had so much fun reconnecting with our Calgary alumni that we will be back in November!
The sun was shining as we enjoyed a lovely BBQ at the Oaks with SMU staff and faculty.
The Tall Ships arrived in Halifax this summer and we were lucky to have a VIP reception on the Alexander von Humboldt II.
The maritime spirit was strong at Atlantic University Pub Night in Ottawa. We had a great turnout this year and even came close to taking home the banner for best attendance! This annual event is a chance for our Alumni to meet other people living in Ottawa who studied in the Maritimes.
Our newest alumni and their families spent a beautiful May evening sailing the Halifax Harbour as part of our Grad week activities. More than 900 new graduates joined our Alumni Family at Convocations last Spring.
Our Alumni Honour Guard marched in the academic procession in front of the Spring and Fall graduates as a way to welcome them into our Alumni family. If you’d like to volunteer, we have convocations in January, May and September. Email email@example.com to join our Honour Guard.
