Brandon University grieves the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

The University enjoyed ties with the Queen that included two visits, in 1970 and in 1984. The Queen laid the cornerstone for the construction of the James R. Brodie Science Centre during her first visit, which drew a crowd of 1,000 to campus. In 1984, she returned to participate in the official opening of the new music building, which is named after her, the Queen Elizabeth II Music Building.

In honour of the Queen, and her lifetime of dedicated public service, Brandon University will fly all flags at half-mast.
