Vanier College held it's annual Open House on Sunday, October 18, 1998. Thanks to widespread participation from all levels of the Vanier community, as well as excellent advanced planning and promotion (and the great weather didn't hurt, either), attendance was estimated between 2000 and 3000 visitors!
Director General Michael Macchiagodena offered his congratulations in a subsequent memo: "I would like to thank all the personnel who participated in the success of our Open House. The successful outcome of this event was due to a team effort with all departments actively participating and doing their best to positively represent their respective areas and, by extension, the College as a whole.
"Vanier looked beautiful. The entire grounds were in first rate with the grass cut, leaves gathered, etc. The beauty of the campus was well shown. Inside, our displays and decorations created a wonderful, learning centered atmosphere.
"An interesting perspective to Vanier people is how much we have improved our college over the last few years. A renovated library, a beautiful Communications area, new student space, a soon to be completed Bookstore, a spacious auditorium, a superb amphitheatre should give us some pride in how much we have improved Vanier."
We now invite you to view some photos of the event taken by Library and Information Technology Centre photographer Dale Robinson.
