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!
