Our alumni had a blast. Camrosians had a blast. We had a blast, too. Why not remember this jam-packed weekend with some of our favourite photos?

Alumni Weekend at the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus is a special day—in addition to welcoming Camrose Lutheran College, Augustana University College and U of A alumni, we also welcome the Camrose community!

More than ever, this year was jam-packed with events—from the family-oriented Kids on Campus to the annual favourite Oktoberfest, there was something for everyone. In fact, we welcomed over 200 alumni, community members and their families to participate in over 20 events across campus. We hope you’ll enjoy looking through some of our favourite photos from one of our favourite weekends of the year!

 


 

Alumni Weekend began Friday night by giving our alumni a chance to get together and reminisce at our Kick-Off Cabaret.

 

In fact, some groups ended up staying well into the evening! We were so excited to have all of you back together in Founders’ Hall!

 

An Augustana Alumni Weekend staple—the class on 1959 held their annual reunion, this time celebrating 60 years!

 

The Class of 1974 returned to campus as well and celebrated their 45th anniversary—we can’t wait to celebrate your 50th with you!

 

The Camrose Lutheran College Class of 1969 came back in droves for Alumni Weekend to celebrate their 50th anniversary. We hope to see you all again soon!

 

 

The Class of 1969 returned for more than just for their 50th anniversary, they also got the bands back together! Alumni Weekend 2019 saw performances by both The Sounds of Seven (top) and Chain Reaction (bottom)!

 

New to Alumni Weekend at Augustana was our Kids on Campus event on the Saturday. We welcomed our alumni and Camrose community to bring their families to campus and join in the fun!

 

In addition to the inflatables in the Quad, the Camrose Mirror Lake Express chugged its way to campus to give a scenic tour of campus! Jeppa’s Train was a favourite for all ages!

 

Kids on Campus also featured various classes for kids and their families. One such class was the Music Class hosted by Administrative Assistant Charlene Brown and volunteer Stephanie Olson.

 

Augustana professors James Kariuki (left) and Brian Rempel (right) joined in the weekend to take part in Augustana’s explosive Chemistry Show during the weekend’s Kids on Campus activities. Over 150 children and their families attended the show!

 

With the weekend on the cusp of October, what better way to celebrate the changing seasons with our alumni than Chaplaincy’s Oktoberfest?

 

Oktoberfest featured various local brews and a German meal for attendees. Each year our student chaplains help out to make the event a success—and to lend a lifting hand!

 

To wrap up the evening was a chance to polka the night away! Pictured: Augustana alumnus, Erik Olson.

 

Lastly, we want to say thank you to all of our alumni and community members who joined us at Alumni Weekend. Be sure to mark your calendars for next year: September 25 – 27, 2020!
