Dal 200 wrapped up with a singalong spectacular last week, as attendees at the final bicentennial event of the year looked back on some of the 200th anniversary's many special moments and ahead to its legacy.
A milestone as exciting as a 200th anniversary naturally lends itself to thinking big. That’s just what Dal has done during its bicentennial year, creating a legacy as the university enters its third century.
An anniversary year requires a party or two, and Dal 200 has had its fair share of big celebrations. Take a look back at some of the galas and gatherings that helped shape the year — from the Bicentennial Launch to the Coast-to-Coast bus tour.
Dal's 200th anniversary year was made vibrant through artistic works such as George Elliott Clarke's epic poem on the university's history and a unique, original theatrical take on Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" (which also celebrated its bicentennial in 2018).
As Dal’s 200th anniversary nears its end, excitement is ramping up about a new public space in the works to honour the legacy of the university’s bicentennial in the years ahead. The Dal community will have a chance to learn more about the space at next week's Dal 200 Wrap-Up event.
