Queen's Homecoming - MBA Class of ’81 gifts QSB $500,000

Queen’s School of Business welcomed an enthusiastic crowd at its annual Homecoming Brunch on Saturday, September 16th. The Atrium was buzzing with celebrants from across Canada, the U.S. and overseas who were greeted by a bagpiper as they entered beautiful Goodes Hall on a sunny Saturday morning.

From the largest contingent of BCom’96s to other BCom classes from 1986, 1981, 1976 and 1966, the Commerce program was well represented. The MBA’81s were the largest MBA group, but the MBA’71s, MBA’76s, and EMBA’96s were also out in force. The most senior alum present was Dan Mathieson, BCom’45.

Dean David Saunders addressed the brunch crowd with an update on School news and accepted fundraising gifts from two classes — $500,000 from MBA Class of ’81 and $76,000 from BComm’96. Class fundraising volunteers Andrew Hungerford, BCom’96 and John See, MBA’81, thanked their classmates for their generous contributions.
