On Sunday, Oct. 28, the downtown campus was thronged with high-school and CEGEP students, their parents and other interested visitors.

They lingered over alternative-fuel engines, stopped to hear snappy presentations on student services, sampled fresh ice cream from our chemists, dropped in on “smart” classrooms, and enjoyed non-stop theatre in the D.B. Clarke Theatre, including roaming stilt-walkers.

History students Marc Dagenais and Mark Wilson dressed up as Gen. Wolfe and Gen. Montcalm, with the enthusiastic approval of Professor Graeme Decarie.

Thanks to everyone who put in the extraordinary effort to make this premiere open house such a success, especially the sponsors, Concordia’s Recruitment Office.
