Cornwall Ontario – St. Lawrence College is inviting all grads and retirees to 50th Anniversary Celebrations on each campus.

The Alumni Days Celebration takes place in Cornwall on July 8th.

“We are inviting our Alumni to visit their old, haunts, bring their kids (or grandkids) and gather the old gang to renew friendships, reminisce and hopefully stay for the weekend, says Kris Ward, Alumni Officer.  “Many of our grads have not been back to Cornwall in over 30 or 40 years, and for others…Cornwall will always be home.”

St. Lawrence College first opened its doors to students in 1967. 50 years later, over 88,000 people have graduated, including 20,000 from the Cornwall Campus.

The College has planned a full day of events and activities for the Cornwall Campus. Below are the highlights:

Join your fellow alumni and their families as we celebrate 50 years of memories.  With an inflatable midway, giant slide and fun activities for all ages, this will be a great time to reflect on past years, catch up with former classmates and faculty and enjoy activities at your campus.
