On behalf of the Alumni Association of Lakehead University, we were thrilled to host alumni, family and friends during the 2017 Homecoming festivities.  
Those who attended enjoyed an inspirational Alumni Awards Dinner, exciting Varsity sports action, intimate and interactive reunions, and the honouring of our dedicated athletes.  But more importantly, we all shared and celebrated with family and friends our time at Lakehead University. To those of you that were unable to attend, we were sorry to have missed you!
We invite you all to take the time to view and enjoy our Homecoming Weekend 2017 photo gallery


Join us for this year's festivities held on September 22-22nd, 2018!

Planning a Reunion - Quick Fact Sheet


Visiting Campus and Thunder Bay

No matter what year you graduated, coming back to Thunder Bay will always hold special memories. While it may have changed since you attended, much of the scenic city on the bay remains the same. Its world-class waterfront, downtown entertainment district, and local attractions are sure to fill up your weekend stay in Thunder Bay. Round out your Homecoming Weekend by reconnecting with the campus and city where it all began!
