Kinesiology and Health Science 50th Celebratory Dinner @ Paradise Banquet & Convention Centre
May 4 @ 6:30 pm

A celebration dinner for alumni, faculty, coaches and staff (current and former), will provide opportunities for visiting with classmates and friends, as well as former teammates, professors and coaches. There will be brief speeches, a slide show and plenty of nostalgia. The dinner is an opportunity to organize a group of alumni or teammates to re-connect, reminisce and celebrate.

It has been 50 years since York University’s School of Kinesiology and Health Science (formerly the Department of Physical Education and Athletics) was created back in 1966-1967 – and the undergraduate academic program, launched in the Fall of 1967, is now in its 50th year.

Tickets ($75.00) are on sale now.
