In 2017, as Canada celebrates its 150th Birthday, Carleton University is also commemorating an important anniversary: its 75th.
Visualizing 75 Years at Carleton is an interactive map which includes photographs, air photos and maps. Using the information provided by the Archives and Research collection, we will continue to populate the interactive map throughout the anniversary year with stories, images, and maps relevant to the 75thcelebration.
The person behind the stories is Sherri Sunstrum.
“Seeing the transformation of Carleton from its humble beginnings at the YMCA to what the campus looks like today was eye-opening,” says Sherri. “A lot of the early information, I didn’t know at all and discovering the unique stories was definitely a highlight.”
You’ll find maps on the various Carleton locations around Ottawa throughout the years, stories about the beginnings, endings, and revival of the Panda Game, stories about student life through the ages, and the successes our alumni have gone on to experience.
Check back regularly as the interactive map gets updated with more stories and pictures from Carleton’s past.
