Alumni events

Sure, you may have stayed in touch with your classmates or reconnected on social media - but nothing beats a face-to-face catch up to share stories, favorite memories, and life events. Our annual alumni events are a great way to create new memories, meet with new people and enjoy some laughs.

  • The College of Pharmacy class of 1969 graduates stand together for a group photo during a reunion.
  • Homecoming

    As a graduate of the University of Manitoba, you’re invited to take part in Homecoming activities held each fall at both Fort Garry and Bannatyne campuses. It’s a great way to see what’s new with your alma matter, including our College’s state-of-the-art Apotex Centre, which boasts laboratories and equipment suitable for a wide range of biological, microbiological, and analytical studies as well as open space and computer labs, a grad study lounge, seminar rooms and high-tech lecture theatres.

  • Reunions are the perfect way to enjoy a stroll down memory lane and learn what your classmates have been up to since graduation. Not sure where to start? We can help! To learn more about planning a milestone reunion (such as a 10, 25, 40 or 50 year get-together) or for help getting started, contact our alumni events officer:

  • Three pharmacy alumni gather around a display case to take a look at the items inside.

Interested in getting involved?

You’ll be the liaison between your classmates and the alumni events officer and help shape every aspect of your special event. Contact Darcy Routledge, alumni events officer, to get started.
