We’re having a party, and you’re invited!

It’s been 50 years since the first class graduated from a newly-chartered Brandon University, and we’re putting on a celebration for everyone. Throughout 2017–18, we have been marking this BU50 golden anniversary and it culminates at Homecoming 2018. We are welcoming thousands back to BU, as we celebrate all alumni and their connections with our biggest Homecoming weekend yet. Join us as we welcome alumni and friends for a weekend of fun and friendship through October 11–14, 2018.

All weekend

The campus is waiting — see what’s changed, and what’s still the same. We’re freshening everything up for the big event, with special displays, gallery shows, exhibitions and more. Take a spin around the city, too!
