UVic launches 50th anniversary site

Online presence unveiled in advance of 2012 celebrations

The University of Victoria has launched a new website designed to create a buzz in advance of the institution’s 50th anniversary in 2012.

The site was unveiled last week at UVic’s annual United Way campaign kickoff. Though the golden anniversary doesn’t officially begin until next September, the website is a place to find information about getting involved in the celebrations. It also contains an archive of facts and photos from UVic’s first 50 years.

A “Great Moments in UVic History” feature is slated to be added next month. Visit www.uvic.ca/anniversary to learn more.
