University of the Fraser Valley is celebrating the opening of its newest buildings at the Chilliwack campus at the Canada Education Park with a combo of party and tour.

The Come See What’s New at Your U bash is set for Thursday, Sept. 20 in Chilliwack.

The public can check out the new facilities, learn about what is being studied there, and visit with representatives from many UFV courses and departments.

The kinesiology department is teaming up with the golf team to offer a golf clinic; the agriculture zone will feature some of its berry industry partners, and the health sciences, theatre, and other departments will also be on site.

Three bands will be performing, and UFV alumni will also be on hand, searching for Lost Alumni.

Register with them and you could win an iPad. Other prizes will also be on offer.

The party runs from 2 to 8 p.m. and is a casual drop-in affair.

“We realize that many people are busy with work, school, and getting the kids to all their activities on a Thursday afternoon, but we’re hoping that everyone will be able to carve a little time to drop by and see what we have to offer at our beautiful new facilities,” said UFV vice-president external Harv McCullough.

“After all, that 10-year-old you’re rushing to hockey practice will be on our doorstep taking first-year classes before you know it!

“We owe the community a lot of thank yous for their support along the way and this is our way of saying it. Plus, we’re very excited about showing off the place!”

Parking is free. Enter off Keith Wilson Road at Dieppe Avenue and turn right on Caen Avenue.
