Trekking into our 49th year on 49th.
On October 13, 1970 a large group of students, faculty, and VIPs made their way from the VCC King Edward Centre to the new VCC Langara campus – an event coined ‘The Great Trek’.
As we kick off celebrations for our 49th year on 49th Avenue, we want to go back to where it all began by honouring our past and the original Langarans who helped make the campus what it is today.
Join us on Wednesday, October 10 for the 2018 Great Trek and Beyond 49 Campaign Launch.
We will walk part of the original 1970 trek route along Cambie Street between 41st Avenue and Langara. The trek will leave from Oakridge Centre at 11:30 am, with sign-in and package pick-up starting at 10:30 am. We’ve come a long way since 1970, and we hope you can join us and help kick off our anniversary celebrations.
Pep Rally and Campaign Launch
The Trek will be followed by a campus-wide celebration and pep rally the Langara Gym (Building G) from 12:30pm-2:00pm. Join us for an inspiring afternoon of fun, reflection, and proud Langara moments. Hear from speakers from throughout Langara’s history and celebrate the official launch of our 49th anniversary celebrations, and Beyond 49.
We’re proud of how far we’ve come since 1970, and we hope you can join us on October 10 to celebrate our journey over the past 49 years. Register for either or both events below.
