New School community from today and yesterday celebrated 50th anniversary

May 9th, 2024

About 150 current and former students, facilitators, faculty and friends of New School attended a 50th anniversary celebration at Dawson on April 13. For many, New School was a defining moment in their lives.

It was “really great to see so many people from such a span of years come out with fond memories of New School,” said Andrew Katz, an English teacher who has been teaching in the New School for the last six years.

Andrew, who served as MC, asked the guests what had brought them back to New School. Various guests in the audience offered answers: “community, acceptance, sharing, memories, inspiration, love, safe places, challenges, accountability, growth, laughter, humour, Greta, identity, empowerment, party, making a difference, humanism, activism, care.”

To read the homepage report on the celebration, including thoughts from Diane Gauvin and Greta Hofmann Nemiroff, visit the link.

Join the AR Cité augmented reality tour May 16

May 9th, 2024

Over the past three years, Dawson students, faculty and local media professionals have been working together to create an augmented reality app, which is now available in the app stores.

Using image recognition and geo-location services, the app brings to life historical depictions, critical observations and artistic interpretations about our campus and the surrounding neighbourhood.

Students not only built the app, but they’ve also created dozens of multimedia vignettes, which teach us about the hidden stories that are all around us.

Join us on Thursday, May 16 at 3 PM in Oliver's (2C.17) where we’ll show off the app and then take a little tour of several locations on and around campus.
