GSWS Alumni Celebration: Panel Discussion and Memory Booth Videos

May 13, 2024

On April 18, 2024, we invited all members of our SFU Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies (GSWS) community, including alumni and students, as well as current and retired faculty, to join us for our SFU GSWS Alumni Celebration at SFU Harbour Centre. Video is now available of the panel discussion portion of the event, as well as our memory booth at the reception.

Event guests at our Alumni Celebration had the opportunity to visit our memory booth and record a video message recounting their favourite experiences connected to their time with SFU GSWS. A few guests even shared their best advice to our current and future students.

As these videos were recorded at the lively post-reception, and we experienced technical issues with our microphone, we have provided captions to accommodate for background noise in certain sections of the video.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by to share their stories, and thanks to our memory booth volunteers!
