Friends and family of Grebel residents and associates are invited to share the day with us. We are planning a host of activities and events that will give you a sample of the student experience at Grebel. This, of course, includes a great meal and an opportunity to connect with students, staff and faculty.
The Goodchild Grady Duo will present an all Canadian program of works for clarinet/bass clarinet and percussion. The concert will feature Toronto based composer Shelley Marwood, Saskatoon composer Kendra Harder, as well as other contemporary composers.

The Op. 39 quintet by Prokofiev is based on his ballet, Trapeze, which was written during his time in Paris. The strange, virtuosic, and sometimes grotesque music perfectly represents circus performers and carnival sights.
Centred around the Prokofiev, our quirky program explores light and dark music by these four swell composers.
The First World War and tumultuous events in Russia form the backdrop to Orie O. Miller's diary of 1920-1921. Representing the newly-formed Mennonite Central Committee, twenty-eight-year-old Miller was one of three American Mennonites who set sail in 1920 to bring relief to fellow Mennonites in war-torn Russia.
Peace Week was initiated by Conrad Grebel University College and continues annually with a series of community events for the week surrounding the International Day of Peace on September 21. Plan an event or take part in one!
This illustrated talk will look at the 1850 Brubacher House in the context of the University of Waterloo’s 1000-acre campus, explaining its historical role as a Mennonite farmhouse, the reasons for its preservation, and the role of the Region of Waterloo, the University, and the Mennonite community in its restoration.
In fall 2018, the Archives Gallery will again be a display location for "The World Remembers." Every day from September 12-November 11, 2018 the names of 1,033,167 soldiers and nurses on all sides of the First World War who lost their lives from 1918-1922 will be displayed at more than 60 locations around the world.
The commemoration is a unique expression of remembrance, reconciliation and education, and shows the enormous human cost of the war.
Please join us for an impromptu music concert in the beautiful UWaterloo Rock Garden. The concert will start at noon and go for approximately an hour, weather permitting.

The University of Waterloo Department of Music at Conrad Grebel University College invites all students, faculty, staff, and community members to join most of the eight ensembles that it sponsors and organizes.
This exhibition, sponsored by Mennonite Central Committee and curated by the Korean Art Forum, collects rarely seen works by American, Chinese, North and South Korean artists.
War monuments, cenotaphs and honour rolls remind us daily of the most dramatic and familiar stories of war. This exhibit tells war stories of a different kind, and lays out an alternative memorial landscape—the landscape of nonresistance.
These stories are gleaned from letters, diaries, newspapers, photographs, government documents and family histories found in the Mennonite Archives of Ontario. Together, they paint a picture of the Great War from a “peace church” perspective.
