McLaughlin College (1968 TO 2012): Tales from Tatham Hall – Then and Now presentation
Mar 15, 2012, 12pm-1:30pm
Named in honour of Colonel Sam McLaughlin, the college became the fourth in Complex 1 at the Keele Street campus of York University in 1968. The first master of McLaughlin was the first “dean” of York: George Tatham. Anyone interested in the history of York or the role of a college residence in the university experience... or anyone with a sense of humour should enjoy this presentation.
- Dr. Jamie Laws (BA ’73) lived in Tatham Hall for three years. He was president of “The BIGG House” and Residence Council. He was chairman of both the McLaughlin College Council and the student caucus of the York Senate. He was the first student ever appointed to the York University Board of Governors. He is a Fellow of Mc Laughlin College and believes that you should always let the truth get in the way of a good story, because truth is stranger than fiction… and often more humorous.
- Mr. Mitch Bernie has been Residence Life coordinator for Tatham Hall since 2011. Prior to that, he worked for Residence Life at Humber College. In addition to residence life, he has a passion for sports.
