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!
There was something for everyone during the second installment of Lakehead's Esports Games Night! Over 200 participants enjoyed some friendly competition, playing games like Super Smash Bros., Counter-Strike and League of Legends- just to name a few!
A great night was had by all. Many thanks to the organizers, volunteers, LUSU and Outpost staff, and the Lakehead University Alumni Association for their generous support! See you next time!
The Nursing Class of 1981 held a reunion during Homecoming Weekend, on October 2-4, 2015. Class organizer, Anna Khanjari (née Pellegrino) was instrumental in ensuring the group rekindled friendships and reminisced about their time at Lakehead- to the delight fellow alumnae:
I'm from the Nursing Class of '85 and although we didn't manage to score tickets to the Gala, we did enjoy three wonderful days of camaraderie. Most of us attended the School of Nursing open house and those of us who lived on campus enjoyed a walk about of the campus and residence. Three of us managed to greet the sunrise at Hillcrest Park on Sunday. We unanimously agreed that our years at Lakehead were fantabulous and that we enjoyed a superior education. As a group, our successes are as varied as we are but the foundation of our education was the base for those successes. - Sylvia Amanda (via Facebook)
