Hundreds of faculty, staff, and students enjoyed karaoke, food, and games at Lakehead Rocks Lake Tamblyn, held on Tuesday, Aug. 15. 

Organized by Lakehead University’s Social Committee, Lakehead Rocks Lake Tamblyn featured karaoke, games, a barbecue, food trucks, a visit from Wolfie, and a chance to donate to the LUSU Food Resource Centre. 

It was also an opportunity for new President Dr. Gillian Siddall to greet her colleagues while also performing a few songs at karaoke. 

The event raised around $300 worth of food and cash donations for LUSU’s Food Resource Centre and allowed faculty and staff to mingle before the new school year begins. Thank you to everyone who donated!

The Social Committee provides fun and meaningful opportunities for faculty and staff to connect throughout the year while further reinforcing the University's institutional values of respect, commitment, community, and innovation. 

The group of volunteers consists of Lakehead University staff members who truly understand the significance of uniting as a community. They receive support from Lakehead administration in alignment with our wellness strategy. Their initiatives have resulted in greater camaraderie among fellow staff, faculty, and students. The Social Committee looks forward to organizing more community-building initiatives in the near future.
