Alumni Holiday Gathering Spreads Good Cheer

'Tis the Season to be Jolly - that was the all-embracing sentiment our Alumni felt on December 19 upon returning to the CDS campus for the annual Holiday Party.
Greeted by members of the Alumni Executive with background DJ music, our alumni and faculty guests enjoyed reconnecting with one another in the intimate setting of The Mantella Family Atrium.
Not only did our guests not want to leave at the end of the evening, but a memorable highlight was the announcement that the Alumni Legacy Fund raised $12,503 during November’s Giving Week! This is a giving milestone for CDS Alumni and a promising addition toward the endowed fund that will one day offer financial assistance for children of CDS Alumni.
Thank you to all who supported the Alumni Legacy Fund this year by donating your personal 1972. Although Giving Week is over, it’s not too late to give for this year.
It was wonderful to see so many of you back on campus! Check out photos of the event in the gallery below.

We wish each and every one of you a very happy and healthy holiday season!

  • CDS Alumnus Achieves Ultimate Hockey Dreams

    Justin Huckvale
    The life of a professional athlete is one dictated by peaks and valleys; the highs of victory and lows of defeat; an ebb and flow which pushes the body – physically and mentally – to its limits. Regardless of your sports affiliation, most of us recognize that Canada and hockey are synonymous. With that national relationship, the pressures and pitfalls needed to be traversed in the NHL become immense, especially when representing the sport on a global scale.
