Thank you for joining us for the Alumni Homecoming at Sechelt and celebrating 50 years of Capilano University.
Capilano University welcomed more than 50 alumni, former employees and community members at the Alumni Homecoming at the kálax-ay Sunshine Coast campus on March 23, 2019. Guests reconnected with old friends, shared memories from CapU's early days and were treated to a champagne reception with live jazz music and refreshments.
The highlight of event was a special champagne toast co-led by Toran Savjord, CapU's vice-president of strategic planning, assessment & institutional effectiveness and Linda Epp, a member of the Capilano University Alumni Association Board of Directors. There wasn't a dry eye in the room as Epp spoke movingly about the impact CapU had on her life in terms of connecting to her Indigenous roots.
"There was so much love in the room," says CapU alumni relations officer, Brittany Barnes. "There was a real feeling of coming together in celebration of the University's 50th anniversary."
