- Grad year: 1950
It has been 65 years since the Engineering Class of 1950 graduated from UBC. To commemorate their reunion all departments from the class of ’50 were invited to their reunion on campus at the Ideas Lounge at Sage Bistro. Classmates came from across the province to attend with their families. Dr. Elizabeth Croft, Associate Dean Education and Professional Development joined the reunion group for lunch and spoke to the alumni and family in attendance about what UBC Engineering is like now and the priorities of the faculty. Class members George Plant (BASc ’50 MECH) and Bryan Quinlan (BASc ’50 CIVL) were kind enough to lend some memorabilia to be displayed at the reunion and all in attendance had a wonderful time sharing old stories and hearing about what campus was like back in 1950.
