On Thursday August 17, 2017, over 100 Lakehead University alumni came out to Sleeping Giant Brewery to enjoy an exclusive craft brewery experience right in our hometown. Special thanks goes out to the Sleeping Giant staff who worked hard making sure everyone was served quickly and for providing the informative tours of the facility. Thanks also to everyone who attended - with your support we were able to raise $2,000 towards the Lakehead Annual Fund - financial support that goes directly to our students.
A fantastic evening of socializing and networking was held on January 25th for our Thunder Bay alumni! Over 80 people registered to attend and packed the upper level of city's popular Foundry Pub. Grads from over the decades and Lakehead's many disciplines mingled and reminisced about their time at university, and shared with us their desire to meet up again!
Many thanks to all those who made it out and we look forward to seeing you at our next event!

The Lakehead Alumni Thunder Bay Chapter and Thunder Bay Swing Dance Society present a night of social dancing, music and classic style. Swing dancing is a dynamic partner dance and it's easy to pick up a few steps to the quick jazz music. The event includes an introductory lesson and appetizers.
Guardians of Eternity is a film produced as part of the Toxic Legacies Project and deals with the issue of how we communicate to future generations the danger of the 237,000 tomes of arsenic trioxide that is buried in the Giant Mine in Yellow Knife where it has to be frozen in perpetuity. It will be toxic forever, it is water soluble (the mine is on Great Slave Lake) and there is enough there to kill everyone on the planet. The film has been made in partnership with the Yellowknife Dene First Nation (YKDFN) and they are the focus of the film.
