Homecoming 2011: reminiscing with former classmates and sowing the seeds of new friendship!
A great number of our graduates took part in the 2011 Homecoming events organized for Social Sciences alumni. View the event pictures.
70th Anniversary of the School of Psychology and Guided Tour of the new world-class facilities
The weekend’s signature event was the reception for the 70th Anniversary of the School of Psychology, where 120 alumni, current and former professors, students and staff members gathered in the newly renovated Vanier Hall for a cocktail reception. During the reception, alumni shared their favourite memories at the speakers’ corner. Guests then moved to 90 University for the official program, which included a look back at the School of Psychology over the years, a speech about the School’s vision and ongoing changes, and the awarding of the Outstanding Alumni Award to Dr. Rosenberg by Dean Mérette. After the official program, guests enjoyed some anniversary cake, which was designed to represent the School’s five fields of research. Many alumni were in attendance, a great number of whom had graduated in the '60s and '70s. Their sense of belonging seemed as strong this past weekend as it was when they were students. It was heart-warming to see former classmates reunite so enthusiastically.
