Homecoming 2018 will be like nothing we have ever seen.

Friday, October 12 will be the 1st Director General’s Cocktail and Student Showcase.

The Atrium in the AME building will be the site of this casual 5à7 where alumni will be welcome to catch up and wander among art projects, student built robots, a theatre production preview and so much more.

At the same time, there will be a BBQ at Memorial field for the women’s rugby & hockey alumni, players and families.

The anchor of the weekend is the traditional football game on Saturday afternoon, October 13 at 1 p.m., but with a twist.

The Montreal Runners, six young men who ran from Montreal to Vancouver in June (4,600 km) to raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation, will start the game with the opening kick-off. Four of the Runners are recent JAC graduates.

Halftime will see a ‘mini-game’ with a team of 12-14 year olds from a nearby high school.

Live music, children’s activities will start at 11 a.m. while the chili supper mix & mingle, under the tent near Memorial field from 4 – 7 p.m., are all part of this friend-raising alumni weekend.

The latest newswe’ve just added a new event on Saturday night – for lovers of Astronomy – JAC Alum & McGill Physics student Youssef Bestavros will speak about the planets!
The event will start at 7 p.m. and will move outside to the Oval at 9 p.m. with telescopes to sky gaze, weather permitting.
