The Hub Celebrating #AthabascaU50

Celebrating #AthabascaU50

June 25 was an amazing celebration of our institution, our history, our learners, our alum, and our teammates.

We are humbled by the messages we received on the 50th Anniversary of Athabasca University. We were honoured by multitude of guests who safely came out to the Light the Night events in Athabasca, Edmonton, and Calgary. We are forever honoured by the displays of that familiar brand of AU-passion and dedication to our institution.

YOU—our learners, our alum, and our ambassadors—are at the core of everything we do.

Here are some highlights, in case you missed anything!


Edmonton, Calgary, and Athabasca all proclaimed that June 25, 2020 was dedicated to Athabasca University!

Light the Night in Athabasca

Athabasca was aglow in AU orange and blue as we lit up the campus in a drive-through style event. Over 250 cars lined up university drive bringing families, approximately 100 dogs, two deer, and even one cat to the event. It was a great time to make memories and celebrate the university’s anniversary with the town of Athabasca!

Below are some photos from the event.
