UNIVERSITY OF CALGARY

Located all throughout the western city of Calgary, the University of Calgary is a large, dominant presence in the university sphere of western Canada. With 3 main campuses (Calgary (Main), Foothills Campus, Spyhill Campus), 95 programs, and over 31,000 students enrolled, UCalgary stands to be one of the largest institutions in all of Canada [1]. Established in 1966, UCalgary has had plenty of time to introduce a plethora of different faculties, including: arts, architecture, business, law, nursing (Qatar), science, veterinary medicine, medicine, graduate Studies, kinesiology, nursing, engineering, social work, and education [2]. The school’s mascot, “Dexter the Dino” was unveiled back in 1982 by students J. Jewitt, and G. Kirkham, and heads the “Calgary Dinos” [3]. As well, a surfeit of athletic clubs can be found, though clubs in other fields are abundant as well [4, 5]. There are hundreds of clubs based around culture, ethnicity, and common interests too [5]. Also, The UCalgary students association hosts several events throughout the year [5]. A star studded cast of guest speakers have come and gone throughout the years, including (but not limited to): Jean Chrétien (the then “Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development), and John Diefenbaker (the then Prime Minister) in 1968 [3]. UCalgary also has a longstanding newspaper column, with the first edition coming out in 1969, and is delivered not just throughout the campuses, but all of Calgary [3]. Over the years, they’ve also gathered a lot of affiliations, which includes: CUSID, ACU, CBIE, IAU, etc. [4]
