BIT 50th Block Party

November 1, 2018

On Tuesday, June 5th, 2018, we kicked off our BIT 50th Anniversary celebrations with a Block Party. The Business Information Technology program, formerly both Computer Analyst/Programmer (CAP) and Information Systems Technology (IST), is celebrating 50 years of our program at Red River College.

Here are some of the highlights from the day:

  • Tara Brown  introduced our event, welcomed our guests, and engaged the audience.
  • We enjoyed the sweet musical talents of Justin LaCroix as he performed multiple sets throughout the event.
  • Thank you, for sharing your time with us, to our visitors, alumni, and retired faculty and staff, a number of whom drove into the city to partake in our festivities.
  • We appreciate our industry friends who chose to set up booths and attend our event, including: ICTAM; Relish Branding; Cisco Canada; and North Forge.
  • We would like to call attention to one family of alumni that came out, who were recently featured by Red River College Alumni Engagement: the Charles family. Thank you to Stu and Heather for coming out, you can read their story in Programmed to Succeed.
