Three inspiring alumni from Brandon University will be honored with awards from the BU Alumni Association at the annual Homecoming dinner and soirée next weekend.

All are invited to attend Homecoming, which is being held earlier this year to take advantage of back-to-school momentum and nicer September weather.


The flag is being lowered to half-mast at Brandon University (BU) to mourn the passing of Dr. Beverley (Bev) A. Nicholson, Professor Emeritus in the Department of Anthropology. Dr. Nicholson passed away on Monday at the age of 86.
