Brandon University Indigenous Alumni Reunion

All My Relations:

The BU Indigenous Alumni Reunion Committee cordially invites you to join us as we honour Indigenous Alumni in a celebration gathering on August 22, 2019, at the Harvest Hall on Brandon University campus.  The Planning Committee has partnered with the BU Alumni Association as a prelude for future initiatives.

We anticipate that the reunion will renew and create more lasting relationships amongst Alumni.

It is an opportunity to share positive remembrances of past student activities and experiences. Of utmost interest will be to share your current and past accomplishments since graduation.

Indigenous Alumni have contributed to the history, significance, advancements and have impacted the academia of Indigenous peoples.

We hope that you will join us for a day of remembering and sharing the wonderful connections that we made with fellow peers, faculty and staff during our studies.

We hope to see you in August.
