There’s a reason we’re called Dinos at the University of Calgary. Millions of years ago, the sub-tropical landscape around this city thundered with the heavy footsteps of ferocious reptiles competing for territorial domination. These days, our students, scholars, faculty and staff channel that same fierce and single-minded drive for leadership – on the courts, fields, lanes, ice and waves of interuniversity sport and in the pursuit of new knowledge and innovation for society at large. We are all Dinos.

Join us as we publicly unveil the newly refreshed Dinos identity, introduce an important new partnership in its evolution, and begin the process of building a true rallying point for school spirit at the University of Calgary.
