UFV Town & Gown

Changing students' lives through scholarships and bursaries

Presented by Prospera Credit Union, the Town & Gown Dinner is UFV’s signature event that celebrates students, Alumni, and Community.

Join us on Wednesday, Nov 13 at 6 pm
Evered Hall, Student Union Building, Abbotsford campus

We call this unique event “Town and Gown” because it symbolically unites our community — our “Town”, with our university community, — our “Gown” (aka academic dress).

Meet student leaders and find out first-hand about how UFV is helping them to advance their life and career goals. Special thanks to all of the student award recipients and volunteers who are participating.
