This university is continually ranked in the top 5 universities in Canada and the top 100 in the world. It is my alma mater. In comparison to other universities, it is my experience that at an undergraduate level, you are compelled to get a very good handle on fundamentals of higher education, thus a second language course, English course, humanities...

If you pass through edmonton. It is a good idea to vist U of A as it is connected to City LRT system. The campus is beautiful, green and very old. Make sure to visit hub mall as well. The mall is very nice as there are many restaurants to choose form and place to seat.

I love the U of A, especially the Hub Mall. The building is unique in the world and famous in its own right. When I went to the U of A years ago, the restaurants and shops were ok... now, they are really great. You can browse at a bookstore, people watch, rest your feet at one of the tables... More

I love the Campus. In summer is green and the staff take care of the landscape. In winter as the day is shorter the light in the many trees reflect the joy of studying, working and living as part of U of AB.

Beautiful campus with the great architecture and many parks and benches. There are many buildings connected by an extensive pedway system. There are many coffee shops and fast food restaurants. There are beautiful libraries and great study spaces throughout the campus.

The University of Alberta campus is one of the most beautiful spaces in the City. Take the time to wander around and enjoy the old brick buildings and the mature trees around Quad. Throughout the campus you will find lots of sculpture, some water features beside the Education Building, in front of the Old Arts Building and beside the Administration... More

Nice campus to wander around in the Summer. Flowers are out, the campus isn't crowded. Check out the bookstore for some neat souvenirs.
