Macdonald Homecoming

Fall on the Macdonald CampusAlthough ongoing health and safety concerns have resulted in the disappointing decision to cancel on-campus Homecoming 2020, alumni are invited to a different kind of fall celebration: At-Home Homecoming. All the events are now open for registration on the McGill Alumni webpage.
Alumni are invited to participate in the many virtual events taking place during At-Home Homecoming – just remember to register.

At-Home Homecoming Highlights:

  • Wednesday September 23: Beatty Lecture with Steven Pinker BA’76, DSc’99
  • Thursday September 24: Town Hall with Principal Suzanne Fortier BSc’72, PhD’76
  • Friday September 25: Leacock Luncheon with Joe Schwarz BSc’69, PhD’74

Friday September 25 at 3:30pm: Don't miss the Webcast/Masterclass featuring Nil Basu, Murray Humphries and Treena Wasonti:io Delormier of the Centre for Indigenous Peoples' Nutrition and Environment (CINE).


The full At-Home Homecoming lineup will feature something for everyone, including some specific Macdonald Campus programming:

  • Saturday September 26 at 4:30pm: Celebrate your reunion with A Trip Down Memory Lane. This virtual event features a personal message from Dean Geitmann as she welcomes alumni to a special Mac tribute. The event will also feature a student’s journey through her undergraduate research experience this summer as she shares the positive impact this will have on future activities. A video montage of photos from the past including key icons on campus will take you on a trip down memory lane – this is not to be missed. Register now  to receive the video link.

McGill is located on land that has long served as a site of meeting and exchange among Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinaabeg nations. We honour and recognize them as the traditional stewards of this land.
