3 ways to celebrate Heritage Hall's centennial
Imagine seeing the big oak doors of Heritage Hall swing open for the first time. Students filled the halls with chatter and laughter; the clock, signaling it was time for classes to begin. One hundred years later, more than 260,000 students have graduated and gone on to build their careers.
2022 is a year of milestones at SAIT — both Heritage Hall and Saitsa (SAIT Students’ Association) turn 100 years old, and you’ll want to be a part of the activity.
Here are three ways to get involved.
Pull out your headset for the full audio experience, If These Halls Could Talk.
A master of the mixer, 2008 RTBN graduate Ron Tarrant wrote, produced, sound designed, narrated and composed this eight-part audio series that was created to help showcase just some of the stories that make up Heritage Hall’s history.
Immerse yourself in the stories from historians, alumni and friends who discuss the creation of Heritage Hall, its role during the Second World War, childhood memories growing up in the building and how the murals on the walls launched the careers of local artists.
Once you’ve had a chance to listen, go behind the scenes with Ron Tarrant as he shares what it took to create the series.
