Open House 2008

Rethinking outreach

What do you get when one of Canada’s leading comprehensive universities throws open its labs and lecture halls for a day? One smart party! Join us at Open House 2008 for an afternoon of exploration and excitement at Simon Fraser University’s Burnaby campus, Saturday, May 31 from noon to 4:30 pm. Learn more at www.sfu.ca/openhouse2008.

SFU Burnaby

SFU’s scenic main campus on Burnaby Mountain is just a short transit ride from downtown. Share our spirit of sustainability and take the SkyTrain to Production Way/University station and then hop a #145 bus to SFU, or from downtown, pick up the #135 SFU bus that travels along Hastings. If you’d prefer to bring the car, campus parking will be free all day.

They’ll be mad if you don’t! With diversions and distractions to appeal to all ages, SFU Open House 2008 is the perfect playground for a family outing. One likes math and another prefers music? It’s all here: robots, synthesizers, candy floss and carnival games; dancers, volcanoes, walking tours and science puzzles. Just be sure to pick up a program guide when you arrive on campus to help plan the day’s activities. You can also find the complete line-up of activities at www.sfu.ca/openhouse2008.

Mother and Child
Girl at Convocation at SFU

It's the rite of passage every SFU student looks forward to: crossing Arthur Erickson's dramatic reflecting pond on the way to collecting a degree or diploma on stage in Convocation Mall.

If you're part of SFU's growing alumni community—now almost 100,000 strong—we hope you'll come back for a trip down memory lane. And don't miss the laughs during a special TheatreSports performance just for you at
1:30 pm in the SFU Theatre; details at www.sfu.ca/alumni.

More than 15,000 people attended Open House 2006, and since then SFU has continued to grow. Check out the changes at UniverCity, the new community development on Burnaby Mountain. Explore our new arts and social sciences complex, which includes one of North America’s most sophisticated forensic labs. And get a sneak peek at Blusson Hall, future home of our new Faculty of Health Sciences, set to open in fall 2008.


No RSVP required! Just make your way to SFU’s Burnaby campus between noon and 4:30 pm on Saturday, May 31. And don’t worry about getting lost; there’ll be plenty of volunteers standing by to point you towards the fun.
