President Allan Cahoon joined C-FAX host Frank Stanford to discuss the Sunset Ceremony, the history of Royal Roads and what the future holds for the university.
“Royal Roads is known for having a beautiful castle and old-growth forests, which we’re proud of, and a bird sanctuary,” Cahoon told listeners. “The natural history, people know about us. But we also have a human history. We were a gathering place for First Nations, the building of the castle and the Dunsmuirs’ legacy and we’re now part of the 55 years of Royal Roads Military College. This event is a celebration of those 55 years and a recognition of some of the historical components, one of which was really important to them was the Sunset Ceremony.”
Cahoon also discusses the programs and the research underway at the university and well as efforts to raise funds for student awards through the 75th celebrations.
