The campus is fun to visit and the Golden Bears play great hockey. Visit the HUB or SUB and enjoy a lot of little out of the way places to grab a snack.

The University is located in a huge piece of land in the South side part of the city. One of the nicest University of Canada.

The student mentors that ran the program were very friendly. The U of A has good parking. The parkade although under construction for what seems like a while now, feels safe and in a good location.

The university has a lovely campus and was bussing with events to welcome the 2013 freshers. There is plenty student accommodation within 5 minutes walk both on campus and private.

The University of Alberta was a pleasant experience - it was full of life and happy young people in a city where you sometimes have to look long for young people with a smile on their face
