Civil Engineering 1985 - 30th reunion

Civil eng. class of '85 at the reunion

The Civil '85 class held their 30 year reunion on the weekend of September 18 and 19th.  Despite all the grey hair and wrinkles, the Civils showed that they still had a ways to go before they could be considered "fully mature".  Close to 30 graduates attended the two evenings, some coming from as far away as California, Alberta and Vancouver Island.  On the first evening, the grads met on the UBC campus and were treated to a tour of the new Cheeze Factory and the Engineering Design Centre, then enjoyed food and drink at the grad student centre, Koerner's Pub.  On the second evening the grads and some spouses met at the Railway Club downtown for more of the same.  A great time was had by all.
