Happy 50th CapU!
The North Vancouver campus community packed the Birch Building cafeteria to celebrate Capilano University’s 50th birthday on Monday, September 10, 2018, with a massive cake, live music and great wishes for the future. CapU students, staff and faculty attended the event alongside special guests—alumni, faculty and the first registrar from when CapU opened its doors in 1968.
“We’re proud of our accomplishments and the many students, and now alumni, who have used their CapU experience as a stepping stone to personal and professional success,” said Capilano University President Paul Dangerfield “It’s because of that pride that we celebrate 50!”
