Celebrate King's Week

We are preparing for a week's worth of activities celebrating all the best parts of our King's Community! 

Keep an eye out for sales on exclusive King's gear and apparel at The King's Bookstore starting in March leading up to the much anticipated festivities on March 14-19.  See below for details on specific events and promotions happening throughout the week. 

Alumni, students, staff, faculty and supporters alike are sure to find something fun and engaging on campus and online this spring as part of our annual Celebrate King's Week!

The Official King's Bucket List

Celebrate King's Week is all about highlighting the very best and brightest parts of our institution's identity.  This year we are compiling the ultimate King’s Bucket List and we need your help! Submit your favourite experiences, events or tasks that capture the essence of life at King’s.  What should every incoming King’s student try at least once before graduation? Can you think of a classic King's moment that every student should experience?  What university traditions encapsulate the spirit of King's? 

Alumni especially know that there is something so unique and great about King's that only comes from having experienced it for yourself.  This Bucket List is a great opportunity to reminisce about your university days and will help us guide first-year students to making the most of their time at King’s. Email your ideas now to alumni@kingsu.ca   

Anyone and everyone is invited to submit their ideas.  All submissions from alumni, students, employees and friends of King's will be eligible to win a variety of prizes including our ultimate "King's Prize Pack".  Entries will be judged on creativity and how well they capture the King's spirit and traditions. Winners will be contacted by email and announced on March 16 & 18.  Here are some examples of what we have received so far. Some of which refer to the early days of King's history on the old 97th street campus.  We would still love to hear about these great memories as part of our alumni archives.  

You haven't had the full King's experience until you've...

  • Hung out in "the Oyster" and played ping pong
  • Had one of Mrs. Knopper's sandwiches in the cafeteria
  • Drawn a giant picture in the snow outside the apartments
  • Done a midnight 7-11 run for study fuel
  • Gone to Worship 937 (now called Worship 857)
  • Sang in the choir or watched their performance at the Winspear
  • Lived in Rez! Both the tower and the apartments!
  • Had a "Talk is Cheap" coffee at the Level with one of your profs during the semester to discuss a paper (or years after graduation just to catch up!)

Add your own must-have King's experiences to this list! Email your submissions for the King's Bucket List to alumni@kingsu.ca
