Cocktail parties, coffee parties, brunches, luncheons, a Philosophers' Café, a pub dance, movies and Theatresports - there's an awful lot for alumni to do on Oct. 1 during SFU's 40th anniversary alumni celebrations at the SFU Burnaby campus.

“With more than 85,000 alumni, we're hoping to get a large turn-out,” says Julie Saito, associate director of alumni relations. “We've sent out over 50,000 invitations and we're already getting a great response from grads who are keen to revisit SFU.”

She encourages alumni to bring their families and revel in a day-long event where they can meet with old friends and favourite professors and learn the latest about SFU's significant development over the past 40 years.

Departments will host coffee, cocktail, brunch and lunch events while hourly walking tours will introduce alumni to new buildings and facilities as well as the new UniverCity development east of the Burnaby campus.

A kids' camp will offer sports, recreation and crafts to keep children entertained. Local musicians, students and alumni will play all day in convocation mall.

There's even free use of the gym and swimming pool for alumni and families.
Evening activites include a free showing of the movie My American Cousin by SFU alumna Sandy Wilson(who will be in attendance), hors d'oeuvres and live jazz at the new Diamond Alumni Centre open house and a pub dance featuring classic rock by Wager.
