BCIT Fab 50 Celebration

Please consider joining us on October 4th for BCIT’s Fab 50 Celebration! With a 1964 retro theme, we'll look back at our past with displays of vintage photos, equipment, machinery and memorabilia.

Saturday, October 4, 2014
12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
BCIT Burnaby Campus

At this free afternoon event which is open to the public, we invite back home all former and current students, faculty and staff along with community members and anyone else who has a connection to BCIT.

The Fab 50 Celebration will provide you with an opportunity to reconnect with BCIT and retell the stories of old...and new!

Take a tour of the campus and enjoy entertainment, food and fun activities for kids. We'll even have quizzes to test your knowledge of 1964.

Bring along souvenirs from your time at BCIT (photos, BCIT clothing, memorabilia), and don't forget to wear your best 1960's outfits.

If there was ever a time to come home again and visit BCIT, this is it.
