Alumni Week at UVic

Alumni Week at UVic is the first week of February. The purpose of this week is to celebrate the impacts and accomplishments of graduates. They are putting on fifteen events this year, and there are several that are aimed at current UVic students (and most of them are free)! Here is a guide to everything that’s happening this week!

Monday February 1st

Dining Etiquette Workshop

  • Learning the ropes on how to eat a four-course meal, in a slightly more professional manner. Register online here!  The event takes place at the University Club and starts at 5:30pm. Terry Cockerline is a trained facilitator in business dining etiquette and always makes the night entertaining and informative.

Tuesday February 2nd

Distinguished Alumni Awards Night

  • See our honored alumni at a beautiful venue. It’s great motivation to hopefully become a distinguished alumna one day yourself! It’s at the Royal BC Museum downtown and starts at 7pm. You can register online here.

Wednesday February 3rd

PRAXIS: Studio/Classroom: Legacy Art from UVic

  • Come to the Legacy Art Gallery downtown to see current work by art educators at UVic. It starts on February 3rd and goes until February 7th.  It’s free! And if you’re in the downtown area, it’s a gorgeous walk to see what the UVic arts department has to offer.

Thursday February 4th

Speed Networking

  • A drop in event that teaches skills on how to network. There is an opportunity to practice and network with alumni in your area of study! It’s from 5pm-8pm in Vertigo, in the SUB.

Friday February 5th

Introverts’ Night Out!

  • Chancellor Shelagh Rogers speaks with a psychologist from the University of Cambridge, Brain Little. His humour and wit make for a wonderful talk, and he teaches you how to get yourself out there. The event is at the First Metropolitan United Church, and begins at 7pm. Make sure you register here.
