frogCampus Fair the best yet—thanks to you

By Kate Davis

By all accounts, this year’s Campus Fair was one of the largest and most successful. Thanks to the work of hundreds of volunteers, the University of Calgary was able to open its doors to the thousands of parents and families who attended—and open up a world of possibilities for them.

Organizers particularly singled out the hard work, creativity and expert organizational skills of the exhibit coordinators and their volunteers from each faculty on campus who have been working on Campus Fair since January.

The day was also a success because of volunteers from Alumni Relations, External Relations, the Executive Suite and students—who acted as campus hosts, parking lot greeters and guest relations staff—as well as the facility staff from Kinesiology, the MacEwan Student Centre and MacEwan Hall, Campus Infrastructure and other groups, such as caretaking and electrical utilities.

Campus Fair was also made possible because of the generous support received from sponsors, who enabled the university to hold this fun, free event for the community. Sponsors at the various levels included:
