QUBS Open House 2015 a Success Despite Inclement Weather

July 1st, 2015

On Sunday June 28th we celebrated the 70th anniversary of QUBS at our annual open house. Despite an incessant drizzle we had between 3-400 visitors and myriad displays showcasing the research and teaching at QUBS. We also had the Grand Opening of the Jessie V. Deslauriers Centre for Biology with its new Jack Hambleton Library and new digs for the Fowler Herbarium.
