Although 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.
