Chalifoux Hall Grand Opening, University of Alberta

On August 30th, 2018, a new residence building dedicated to housing first-year students opened at the University of Alberta.

The administration, in close consultation with students and the community, chose Senator Chalifoux to be the namesake of the new hall, certain that she "inspires students to do great things [and embodies the values of] reconciliation, a connection to the U of A, and diversity."

See the slideshow below for photos of the Grand Opening, and links to news articles further down the page.
