Homecoming 2018 (BU50)

Thank-you for joining our anniversary party

Our special BU50 Homecoming 2018 was a four-day weekend of fun, festivities and community celebrations. It had been 50 years since the first class graduated from a newly-chartered Brandon University, and the 2018 Homecoming capped a year of celebrating BU’s golden anniversary.

It was our biggest Homecoming yet, celebrating all alumni, students, faculty, staff, neighbours friends and everyone.

Thanks to all who shared our special weekend.

Huge appreciation to our 2018 sponsors

The BU50 Homecoming 2018 celebration was bigger and better, and we couldn’t have done it without significant support from many friends. We thank the sponsors who contributed to our community anniversary party, and we hope you will thank them as well.

The way it was

We have collected images from all of BU50 Homecoming so that the memories will never fade.

Fifty Fest

Let’s rock!

Class and faculty reunions

Homecoming 2018 was a milestone reunion for many of our alumni. We were especially thrilled to mark the 50th anniversary of the first-ever class to graduate with Brandon University degrees, the Class of 1968. We also marked special anniversary years for everyone who graduated in a class year that ends in -8 or -3.

Since Homecoming 2018 was our largest event yet, we also heard from many alumni who planned special reunions. If you’re interested in participating in a reunion of anything from Psychology to Political Science, from BUSU to The Quill, reach out and learn how we can support your efforts to connect and reunite.
