    Bang for the buck

    It is giving quite a good education at a not so expensive cost. From what i remember it was 14,400 a year for everything for a resident. Which is very cheap in hindsight.

    Food and Dining

    The food court there had quite good food. I got coffee from a shop in there and it was extremely good.

    Dorm Life

    I did not really like the dorms, the building i went into had stone walls, and it just was not very pretty. I did not like the floor lobby much either :/

    Academic Rigor

    From what i have seen it is quite a good school with academics, while you dont need a 4.0 to get in, good grades are required.

    In three sentences

    It is a fairly nice school. I like that it is in the middle of the city, and most of the buildings are very nice.

    Greek Life

    As a member of the Greek community, I have nothing but good things to say about the UofA Greek community. Wonderful people, none of the stereotypes that one would assume.

    Clubs and Activities

    Great range from Greek life to manga.

    Great for these types of students

    Academically focused, math≻ience types.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Every Monday night at the Hudsons on campus, fraternities and sororities get together after meeting for a pint.

    Bang for the buck

    One of the best schools (top 4 actually) in Canada, you are paying for a great education.

    What to do for fun

    Join clubs!

    Food and Dining

    There are the usual choices; tim hortons, edo, etc. Nothing special.

    Dorm Life

    From my friends who live in lister, they just complain.

    Tips for prospective students

    Join clubs and try to buy your books off of other students rather than wasting your money at the book store.

    In three sentences

    Wonderful professors and students, good atmosphere but little university spirit.

    What to do for fun

    Just hanging with friends around campus is a lot of fun especially if you dont get to see them often.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good here but sometimes the service is lacking.

    Dorm Life

    Ive never seen a dorm room yet.

    Academic Rigor

    Definitely loaded with homework every day

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to sit close to the front for lectures as it is much easier to focus and pay attention when sitting close whereas falling asleep in the back.

    In three sentences

    The University of Alberta is a great environment for learning. The teachers are very nice and super interactive with the students. This university is also filled with many engaging activities that is sure to build school spirit.

    It is a great school, that offers a variety of programs. They aren't the best at accepting transfer students. Beautiful Campus!
