University of Victoria seeks more ‘Great Moments’

Share your best times at UVic with fellow alumni and the public

The University of Victoria’s 50th anniversary website is still accepting submissions for its “Great Moments at UVic” spotlight, but time is running out.

Jan. 20 is the deadline to submit your special memories of UVic events, achievements or campus developments to the site, which was created in anticipation of the institution’s golden anniversary celebrations in 2012. Personal memories are also welcome.

Eighteen submissions have been made so far.

For an idea of what anniversary organizers are looking for, some sample moments can be viewed on the website at www.uvic.ca/anniversary/moments/index.php, which is also where submissions can be made.

Photos, videos and up to 200 words of copy can be submitted.

A selection committee will review all submissions with an eye to sharing as many as possible over the course of the 2012-13 anniversary period.
