Defining a decade

The Gazette reflects on Memorial’s last 10 years

By Meaghan Whelan

It’s often been said that Memorial University is like its own little city. And like cities, there are countless stories around every corner.

When Gazette editors sent out a request for story pitches for a feature about significant accomplishments from 2010-20, they expected to get about a dozen responses. Instead, more than 80 different suggestions came in from all across the university.

What was meant to be a quick send off to the last decade published in late December morphed into a larger project in order to do justice to the numerous good news stories.

Throughout the winter 2020 semester, the Gazette will publish a series of stories under the title Defining a Decade. We invite you to join us as we remember some of the accomplishments, achievements and impacts that defined Memorial’s last 10 years.

Where possible, we’ve included an update to let readers know of any changes in the intervening years.

Expect to see at least stories on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the winter semester. Happy reading and reminiscing!
