Honouring Our Graduates

iPad dans l'Avenue des diplômés

 

Combining memories and modernity, Université de Saint-Boniface (USB) has immortalized 200 years of French Education by putting its graduates in the spotlight. 

Near the Provencher Entrance Hall, the Avenue des diplômés provides USB’s visitors with a journey through time. Thanks to a brand new application, users can view their own graduation photo, or those of their loved ones, throughout time.  

“We have scanned nearly 5,000 USB graduate photos from our archives,” explained Louis St-Cyr, Director of USB’s Development and Communications Office. “Photos can easily be searched by name or by graduation year on the iPads provided.”

The Avenue des diplômés also includes a massive mural featuring photos of some of our most illustrious graduates.

In addition, six permanent panels are on display, along with an interactive tablet, providing users with access to 1,500 photos and documents from the USB Archives. 

“We divided the 200 years into six sections of history with information and photos, so that any one of our visitors can quickly get a good overview of the significant facts from our history,” said Louis St-Cyr.
