Bill Adcock and Andrew Snook

Celebrating the start of their academic journey

November 23, 2015

Graduates returned to Sheridan where their academic journey began for the General Arts and Science Homecoming Alumni Reunion this fall.

The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences and Sheridan Alumni hosted the event to mark the 40th anniversary of the program with its rich tradition of academic inquiry, exploration and path-finding. Alumni gathered at Brampton’s Davis Campus to reconnect and reminisce with fellow alumni, faculty, community supporters and current students. Over the past 40 years, the General Arts and Science program has evolved from a small graduating class to one of over 200 graduates per year - making Sheridan’s program one of the largest and best in Ontario.

Graduates of this remarkable program have gone on to make meaningful and significant contributions within their respective communities and professions. One of those alumni, Andrew Snook (2002) spoke of the role the program played in launching his career as a professional writer and editor. Since April, he has been the Editor of Canadian Forest Industries, Canadian Biomass and Rock to Road. Andrew published his first book Remy’s Dilemma this past spring. More about the book here:

Other speakers during the evening included Arlie Belliveau and Johanna Pangilinan.
