As the new academic year begins, both campuses are buzzing with activity.

New and returning students are getting settled into new routines and discovering all that the university has to offer.

As part of back-to-school events, Concordia’s president Alan Shepard is hosting two informal get-togethers.

This is an annual tradition that kicks off the new academic year and gives the president opportunities to meet with as many students, faculty and staff members as possible. 


The president will be hosting the two events during the second week of the school year — on Tuesday, September 12, on the Sir George Williams Campus, and on Wednesday, September 13, on the Loyola Campus.

These are sustainable get-togethers with a commitment to zero waste (don’t forget to bring your own beverage container).

What: President’s back-to-school get-together
When: Tuesday, September 12, from 8:30 a.m. to 10 a.m.
Where: Abe and Harriet Gold Atrium, Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex (EV), 1515 Ste-Catherine St. W.

What: President’s back-to-school get-together
When:  Wednesday, September 13 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. (lunch will be served)

In case of rain, the get-together will be held in the SP Atrium.
