Visit to Soldiers’ Tower!

Posted on Posted in Events

Secured a new place to visit!

Have you ever been to Hart House? Well you may have passed by a tower, and maybe even heard the bells there ring!

Located adjacent to Hart House, the Soldiers’ Tower is a memorial to the 1185 members of the University (including the 140 from Engineering) who gave their lives in the cause of peace and freedom during the two World Wars.

MEMORIAL ROOM GUIDED TALK

In light of the centenary of WWI, we especially invite current engineering students to visit and receive a guided talk of the artifacts in the Memorial Room of the Soldiers’ Tower.
Though not specific to Engineering, there are several artifacts on display pertaining to Skule(TM) that will be of interest.

You may visit during any one of the 4 times:

Friday Nov. 7 @ 1:15 & 2:15 pm
Sunday Nov. 9 @ 12:30 & 1:45 pm

Sign up here!

Drop-in is also welcome Sunday Nov. 9 between the designated guided talk times (the room is open 12-3pm). Bells in the tower will ring 12-1pm that day.

Guided talk will be approximately 20-30 minutes in length and will be restricted to 20 students each.

Sign-up will close approximately 24 hours before each date of visit.

 

Interested in seeing the bells close-up? Click on the sign-up form link and you can get details on the carillon tours that the Soldiers’ Tower Committee is also holding, with a nice set of tours during the month of November! 🙂

 

Fun fact: Hart House has a history with engineering students as well, did you know? Should talk about some our past relationship with Hart House another time.
