If you plan to be in town on Sunday morning and are looking for another opportunity to get together with classmates, come join us for a new tradition: breakfast on campus. This will be followed by a great old tradition: Bob Parkinson, DipAgr'63, will guide this historical and entertaining tour of the campus and trees. Registration required. The tour will be held only if there is sufficient registration.
Christopher Manfredi, Dean of Arts, and Martin Grant, Dean of Science, invite alumni to the sixth annual Arts and Science Deans' Homecoming Breakfast. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet old friends and make new ones while finding out the latest news about the faculties and McGill.
Take a guided tour through one of McGill's newest buildings. Opened in September 2003, the Lorne M. Trottier Building is dedicated to undergraduate education in information technology.
