Your campus missed you
September 9, 2020 | Campus Life
Summer is always the quietest season at MacEwan, but you might be surprised at just how much there is to see. Take a peek at some of our favourite summer snapshots.
Tulips continued to bloom outside our doors. Our bees kept buzzing (and producing the delicious MacEwan honey they’re known for). We found new ways to celebrate the incredible accomplishments of our grads with Curbside Convocation. And our senior leaders congratulated our graduating award recipients in person. Here, Acting President John McGrath presented the President’s Medal to Jamie Erickson. <i>Mother Bear <i />stood her ground outside of the kihêw waciston Indigenous Centre. A burst of colour bloomed outside Allard Hall. Students still studied in the library – just farther apart. We renovated the library to create more study space, more power outlets, more bookable study rooms and a larger variety of seating. We continued to show our pride. Sport and wellness staff took their fitness classes outdoors. We welcomed our new President and Vice-chancellor Dr. Annette Trimbee (centre), and showed her around campus. She even met the bees. And we were thrilled to welcome students back to MacEwan Residence. Even though the move-in process quieter than usual – students moved in over a period of days to accommodate physical distancing and included extra cleaning protocols. Welcome to the Fall semester!
