Celebrating our 50th anniversary!
Posted on Tuesday March 31 2015 by Terri Hignett
2015 marks an important milestone for the AECC as it has been 50 years since the college opened the doors to its first chiropractic students. Since its beginnings back in 1965 the AECC has become a leading healthcare institution, educating thousands of undergraduate students with postgraduate numbers increasing yearly.
One thing that we like to think makes the AECC so great is our people. Our students, our staff and of course our alumni are all fantastic advocates of the profession and as such we are only too happy to be able to give something back to them which can mean only one thing – time to celebrate!
Celebrations have already commenced with our students recently enjoying a casino themed party at the Bournemouth Marriott hotel. Alongside a champagne reception and band the students also enjoyed a range of casino tables, food and a prop-laden photo booth. There was also a prize draw with champagne, cinema tickets and an iPad air won by 2nd year student Maarten Vis!
Our staff party is next in line which will be held also at the Marriott Hotel on the 10th of July in place of our usual staff barbeque. The year will culminate in our biggest alumni celebration yet with events (including our Alumni Reunion) taking place from Friday 25th – Sunday 27th September. We are particularly pleased to be able to tie in our own event with the 90th Anniversary of the BCA, making it an even bigger occasion to mark.
