What is a Langaran? Meet the Langarans of Community Day

Throughout our Beyond 49 anniversary campaign, we’ve referred to our  community of Langarans, but what does this word really mean? We are Langarans. We are the faculty and staff that make Langara College such an incredible place to work every day. Langarans are also the network of former students, alumni, retirees, and students who have been part of our journey over the past 49 years.

We are excited to announce that many Langarans will return to campus on Saturday, June 15 to be part of our Community Day presented by RBC Royal Bank activities. From food truck owners to entertainers, these individuals really show what it means to be a Langaran.

We wanted to take the time to share their stories and showcase the talent and skills. The Langarans of Community Day as we follow a select group of Langarans and share their stories – their connection to Langara, what they are doing now, and what Langara means to them. They come from different areas of the College and the experience and knowledge they received during from their time at Langara have helped them to become active members of their communities.
