Kudos to the University of Calgary for hosting another successful Alumni Weekend. The UofC hosted the Alumni Weekend from September 7 to September 9 this year and it is only the third time its hosting the event. Although having an Alumni Weekend is relatively new for the UofC, without a doubt the event is getting better and better every year.
One of lawyers, Fernando Arteaga, as a member of the Alumni Weekend Subcommittee, participated with others in planning of the event. He certainly was very excited that things ran smoothly and the Alumni Weekend had a good turnout. “For me the Alumni Weekend is a great opportunity to visit my alma mater, meet new students and say hi to familiar faces,” Fernando adds “plus I get to know first hand what the UofC is plans to do to continue to have a positive impact in this Province.”
Besides volunteering with the Alumni Weekend Subcommittee, Fernando also participated in the Race of the Rexes at the Kick off Event of the Alumni Weekend. The Race took place during half time of a game where the Dinos defeated the UBC Thunderbirds at McMahon Stadium. Fernando was representing the Faculty of Law, wearing a Rex costume and his robes. Although he did not win, Fernando says that he had a great time. He adds, “I had so much fun that I will definitely do it again next year if possible.”
