UWC Atlantic campus volunteers

"I have been involved with the Campus Volunteers since 2012, when the group began, under Jill Longson's inspiration, to carry out projects at AC ahead of the 50th celebrations. We have worked in the gardens, in the student houses and in various other locations on campus to enhance and renovate areas for all those who live, study and work at UWC Atlantic. For myself, it's a chance to give something back to this wonderful college in the company of old and new friends. It is lovely to see that the dream is still alive and flourishing!"

Sue Dean, UWCA '74

Friday Night Lectures

Friday Night Lectures is a decades-long UWC Atlantic tradition for students to learn about a wide range of topics from alumni with personal stories and life journeys. The lectures are held on Friday evenings, in one of the oldest rooms on campus. They are officially 30 minutes long, but often extend to up to a few hours, in which attendees engage in discussions with the speaker and with each other. 
If you would like to be a guest speaker at our Friday Night Lecture, please contact us

"In the Friday Night Lecture I conveyed a story, based on personal experiences, of failures and successes in an effort to bring about positive social change. Throughout an interactive session the audience was challenged to come up with ideas, think through the details such that it would be possible to implement the ideas, and list concrete next steps that they can try. The goal was for the students to learn what it takes to implement an idea and to inspire others to adopt it. Thank you so much for inviting me. It was truly wonderful to interact with students and staff.
