A Guided Tour of Marianopolis College

Angel Astronomer and Angel Geographer, Marianopolis College

6 p.m. Tuesday, September 23, 2008

This is the centennial year of the founding of Marianopolis College. We will view its delightful Art Deco auditorium and library, formerly a chapel. Come and learn about the facinating history of Marianopolis College.

In 1908, Notre Dame Ladies College was established by the Congrégation de Notre Dame. A bilingual college, it was the first institution of higher learning for English Catholic women in Quebec. Three years later the first degree was conferred through an affiliation with Université Laval. In 1922, affiliation was transferred to the newly chartered Université de Montréal. In 1925 new facilities designed by Louis-Auguste Amos and Joseph-Omer Marchand were opened in the heart of Westmount.

We meet in the lobby of Marianopolis College at 4873 Westmount Avenue, Westmount, which is in between Vendome and Villa-Maria metro stations.

Tour starts at 6 p.m. sharp. Be sure to be dressed for walking.

A reception will follow.

Members $10
Non-Members $15
