Went on a tour

As an alumni, I love my University and have seen it grow into a great institution. The tour was great as we could see how it grew from when we went.

I visited the U of A for a session in the Technology Learning Center. The University has a nice set up with state of the art Macs with labs of different sizes.

Hi. If you are travelling to Edmonton specifically to attend a course and need accommodation, I recommend the Alberta Place Suites. The UofA Faculty of Extention is in this beautiful building that is centrally located, and within pedwalks of major shopping and food outlets. The Facility itself is clean and well-maintained with a security desk and guards.

I am a local and I don't think you should be going to a foreign place to visit their University. There are better things you can do.

The old "Tuck Shop" no longer exists, but there is a nice shopping mall on campus. The Rutherford museum on Saskatchewan drive is definitely worth a visit.

Of course I'd give my alma mater a good rating. I can't remember all the museums and attractions here, but if you go on the internet, there's a list of them. They've been renovating and upgrading a lot of the buildings. It's a good walk through here at any time of year. I like coming here when the students are... More

We visited Edmonton and stay in Lister Center for 2 nights. We just want to stay in not costly accommodation and the dorm room was very nice and the only thing is there is no ac and because it is dorm like, we have to share the bathroom with other visitors. Not too bad at all since it is not... More

This campus is amazing. It is large and very beautiful. Sits right on the river valley with great access to biking and running. A nice mixture of new and old architecture.

The place is beautiful, open to visitors but there are some place that are not open all the time, I've been visiting the university for several days now, today we went to the paleontology museum and the mineral museum (they are not actually museums but small displays of collections) and we had a great time, everything is on perfect conditions...

We went to the campus to watch a volleyball tournament and was disappointed by the amount of money that was charged to park in the parkade, especially when it is off peak time for the campus being we visited in July. in addition the signage to find the gym was poor which resulted in us spending 15 minutes lost wandering...
