Western College of Veterinary Medicine is second to none!

Visited the WCVM for the grand opening of the BJ Hughes Centre for Clinical Studies. What a magnificent campus and a first rate veterinary school!

After working here and retiring every fall I miss being on campus. The place has that old world university feel with the architecture and the old trees , the walkways and centre courtyard. Every year in the fall the students would return and it would return to life. Seeing all their fresh faces. Miss it so much. Truly a special... More

The architecture is beautiful and the grounds are well kept and beautiful. There is no formal tour that I know of, but if you are willing to blaze your own trail there are many hidden gems. The Ag Building, the Bowl, and the Admin Building are highlights.

I needed to have some transcript info sent plus I ordered some new copies of my "ancient" degrees. The transcript exercise was done internally & very quickly. The degrees required a visit to the Student Central in the Student & Enrolment Services. I had the pleasure of dealing with 3 of the friendliest young ladies ever in my career as... More

The University of Saskatchewan is a very beautiful campus. Many buildings of stone, lots of trees which give a feeling of calm and peacefulness. Along with all the historical buildings there is building between the College of Education and the University Hospital. It is the Diefenbaker Centre which stores artifacts etc about former Prime Minister John G. Diefenbaker. Lots of... More

Our first time on campus could have been a more positive experience if there was better signage. The buildings were not well marked. We were "nickled and dimed" by the parking meters - a day pass would be appreciated, rather than having to feed meters every time you had to move your vehicle.

When we went to visit our relatives in Saskatoon, we got the chance to see the university. The place is relaxing because of the trees and buildings. I love the agriculture building because it stood there facing a garden and lawn. A lot of people were playing Pokemon go on the area and some were biking. Just make sure to... More

I love the architecture around the campus. It's beautiful no matter which season, but I especially like it during spring or summer; everything is in bloom and so colourful. There are many things to see at the U of S, and if you need help finding anything, the students/faculty/other visitors are willing to help you get along. I am partial... More

A visit to this campus is a must if you're interested in higher learning, architecture and history. The oldest buildings date back to the date Saskatchewan became a Province and Laurier was Canada's Prime Minister. Many Faculties are present and a Nobel Prize winner in Chemistry has the Chemistry Building named in his honour. The Architecture is unique as the... More

For someone who has never been to Saskatoon the University is most definitely a great location to visit, the old with the new.
