HUMBER REVEALS PLANS FOR ANNUAL ALUMNI AND FAMILY WEEKEND

ETOBICOKE, Ont – In celebration of the 51st season of Humber Varsity, the department of athletics and recreation is gearing up for its annual Alumni and Family Weekend at Humber College, which takes place Sept. 20 – 23, 2018.

The four-day event will see returning alumni, current student-athletes, staff, family and friends enjoy events that bring together lifelong friends, celebrate Humber's athletic excellence, and provide a nostalgic return to the Humber community. Major events will include multiple alumni games, the Family Night Gala, and Humber varsity events.

"Humber Athletics has been the home for thousands of student-athletes who continue to demonstrate exceptional leadership, across the country and around the world," said Ray Chateau, Humber's Director of Athletics and Recreation.
