O-Week and Homecoming Events
In September, when Brock students return to campus for the 2017-18 school year, Brock will host several Canada 150 themed events during O-Week and Homecoming. Over the course of the summer, these events will be announced. Brock students can expect high-energy events that will celebrate our country’s 150th anniversary of Confederation.
Brock alumnus Adam Shoalts’ Canadian Arctic Expedition
Starting in May, Brock alumnus Adam Shoalts (BA ‘09) will begin an amazing journey for Canada 150. Shoalts will partake in a 4,000 kilometre journey across the Canadian Arctic. He will travel by foot, packraft and canoe. His journey begins at the Canada-Alaska border, and he will finish in the salt-water of Hudson Bay. Brock is proud to sponsor Shoalts while he begins his unbelievable journey that will highlight some of the beautiful nature that the Northern part of our country has to offer.
Weekly Farmer’s Markets
During the summer, Brock will host weekly farmer’s markets that will take place on Thursday afternoons. The display of local produce, artisan products, music and backyard games will celebrate Canadians around the Niagara region. The farmer’s markets are located on the Brock campus and give students and the local community a chance to experience local products.
Partnership with St. Catharines in Doors Open Event
On June 24, Brock and the city of St. Catharines will partner up for a Doors Open event. The event will show off some of the local infrastructure, cultural centres, buildings and other spaces that shape our community. There will be free tours of all these buildings in honour of Canada’s 150th celebration. As a part of these tours, Brock will be giving free guided tours of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts and the historic Rodman Hall.
