We asked our alumni to tell us their best Barn stories – from beers to boots in the rafters. Boy did they have a lot to say (not all of which can be printed in a family magazine!).

Here’s a sampling of the best of the Barn:



I got to DJ the last event ever put on by the LCSA there – the Winter Formal of January 2015. Nothing prepared me for the night I was about to face. For some reason, all the usual hangouts were closed that night, so once the doors opened… mayhem ensued. To top it all off, we had a group of people in dinosaur onesies raid the place. That made my night!

The Barn was a big part of student life for me. It’s where we unwound and met people in other programs. I remember my first cabaret - Halloween - dressed as a bumblebee, and how fun it was. After classes some days I’d get my boys from the college daycare and over we’d go to The Barn, dodging grasshoppers along the way through a field that’s no longer there. Cabarets, air bands, movie nights and barbecues were the bow atop the gift of my formal education. Good memories!

The Barn was THE place to be every weekend. Cabarets at The Barn were always a hot ticket, not just for students but for other members of the community. Drinks flowed freely and the dance floor was always packed. The bands that the LCSA brought in were always top notch entertainment. One of the most memorable bands that I recall seeing was a group out of Saskatoon by the name of “Nick Danger” – which featured a very young guitar whiz by the name of Colin James.
