Fifty Years of LA Celebration this Fall

The University of Guelph’s Landscape Architecture programs are celebrated for creating some of the very best graduates of landscape architecture in the world – 2015 marks 50 years of landscape architecture at Guelph.  Tracking an alumni base of +1500, many indicate a special connection with their time at Guelph, the Ontario Agriculture College, the Landscape Architecture building and, specifically, its ‘studio’ learning spaces; it’s time to honour these connections.

What was developed from a “seed drying” facility of 1965 into a landscape architectural “learning space” in 1969, and largely accommodating a small cohort of less than 20 students (predominantly male!) now accommodates today’s very diverse and dynamic student cohort of close to 300 students in two professional programs of landscape architecture (BLA & MLA).

For a weekend celebration of “50 years of landscape architecture at the University of Guelph” join us on Homecoming weekend, in the LA Building (and throughout campus), for re-connection/celebration event activities beginning on the evening of Friday, September 18th, continuing through to the morning of Sunday, September 20th, 2015.  Alumni, students and guests are welcome!

Detailed event schedule and ticket information are available here.  Follow LA50 on Facebook and watch for the SEDRD website and email updates!
