Turning 50: Caroline DePatie

In honour of Capilano’s 50th Anniversary, we are celebrating CapU faculty and staff members who are also turning 50 this year. In this series, they share their inspirations, hopes and stories about what it means to reach this significant milestone with their birthday buddy, Capilano University.

“I have not given much thought to turning 50. For me age is a state of mind and you should not dwell on it too much — just live life at its fullest!”

Since I’ve been at Cap, there has been constant change, which is what keeps it interesting and challenging. I enjoy working on community projects with students; one of them being a multi-year project building mountain bike trails on the Sunshine Coast.

The trails are part of a larger multi-use trail network and are located beside an Elementary School where students use them all the time. It is very rewarding to work on projects that end up leaving a legacy at the community level.
