Homecoming 2023

Homecoming is almost here! Join us September 14-17 for four days of fun, fellowship, reunions and more! Reunite with friends, former classmates and faculty as you tour the campus, take in exciting Bobcats action, and enjoy the many Homecoming events.

This will be a great year to attend Homecoming as we celebrate with new events and returning favourites. Brandon University and Brandon College alumni and friends from every year are welcome back for Homecoming. We are linked by the experiences we shared and the bonds we forged at Brandon College and Brandon University.

Food 5.0: How We Feed the Future

Food has become the new religion. While denominations such as paleo, vegan, and organic debate which is “the way,” we’re ignoring a truth that affects us all: to support a population nearing 10 billion by 2050 agriculture must become infinitely sustainable and simultaneously increase production by 60 to 70 percent. Saik talks about the demands that will be faced by a core group of farmers called upon to grow the vast majority of the world’s staple food supply. While mighty in their ability, they need support from a general public that increasingly has no idea how they operate. Rob will bring together his experiences from domestic and international travel to provide the audience with Food For Thought as we look to Feed The Future.

The Terry Fox Run is coming to Brandon University this September! It will take place Sunday, Sept. 17, as one of the concluding events at BU Homecoming.

One of Canada’s largest and most beloved annual fundraising events, the Terry Fox Run has raised more than $850 million dollars for the fight against cancer since Fox launched his epic Marathon of Hope in 1980.

Class and faculty reunions

Homecoming 2023 will be a milestone reunion for many of our alumni. We’re especially thrilled to mark the 60th anniversary of the Brandon University Class of 1963, and the 50th anniversary of the Brandon University Class of 1973. We are also marking special anniversary years for everyone who graduated in a class year that ends in -3 or -8.

We are also hearing from alumni interested in planning special reunions. If you’re interested in participating in a reunion of anything from Music to Mathematics, from BUSU to The Quill, reach out and learn how we can support your efforts to connect and reunite.
