Memorial remembers

As a living memorial to war dead, Memorial University has always been committed to commemoration and does so in a variety of ways, including:

  • The Memorial Wall in Founder's Gallery (lobby) of Arts and Administration Building, St. John's campus, where a dedication plaque is inscribed with the words: "That in freedom of learning their sacrifice might not be forgotten."War monument, Bowering Park
  • Annual Ceremony of Remembrance held each November at the St. John's campus, with participation by the Royal Canadian Legion color party and the Royal Newfoundland Regiment Band. Commemorative activities also take place at the Grenfell Campus in Corner Brook and at the Marine Institute in St. John's, where ceremonies are held to honor those lost in the merchant marine service.
  • Laying of commemorative wreaths each year at Nov. 11 and July 1 war memorial ceremonies in St. John's and Corner Brook.
  • Memorial Tower erected on St. John's campus in 1990s as a result of a donation by Johnson Family Foundation, with a dedication plaque acknowledging the sacrifice of all the men and women who served their country.
