Edmonton has 10 post-secondary institutions to help you advance your career or find a new one.
- A Place to Call Home - Amy Carter
The very first day of school I missed the bus, waited for 40 minutes, and was 20 minutes late for class. But it got better.
- An Aussie in Edmonton - Meg McCready
The day the temperature reached an inconceivable -36 C, I stayed in bed and missed class. (They say only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the midday sun. I say only mad Canadians go out in those temperatures.) Luckily for my studies, that only happened once during the first winter.
- Crossing One Bridge - Ann Henry
As I crossed the High Level Bridge today, it reminded me why Edmonton is a great place to call home. My attention was drawn first by the bright blue sky and then the valley which stretches for miles in either direction.
- From India to Edmonton - Ananda Majumdar
I have been an international student at Grant MacEwan University since 2008, after arriving from Calcutta, India. This was my second trip to Canada, so I was not fearful of coming to Edmonton.
- Grant MacEwan Music Program - Bill Uren
In elementary school, I'd learned Edmonton was the capital city of Alberta, and that was pretty well it.
- Green & Gold - Eric Hunter
Eric Hunter came to study in Edmonton from Winnipeg, Manitoba. He has since lived in the city for five years. On top of being a University of Alberta student, he plays on the university’s Golden Bears Mens hockey team.
- Mini Donut Madness - Matthew Dringenberg
I was very excited when I found out there was a chance for me to go out with my video camera and film all the aspects of Edmonton and then share it with other people.
- People Can Live In Ice? - Joseph Florent Feulefack
When I saw the snow, I remembered how we used to learn about the Inuit in my geography textbooks back in Cameroon. And I thought to myself, “So it’s really true. People can live in ice.”
- Potluck - Nan Gai
When I first arrived she helped me with the transition to this culture. To the community, and school especially. It saved a lot of time, because when you’re new to a country, sometimes you just don’t know what to do.
- Reaching out from Edmonton - Caitlin Jackson
In the summer of 2010 we decided that Project HOPE needed to facilitate more for our community so we founded a not-for-profit organization.
- Three Passions, One Lucky Lady! - Geneva Hamilton
Music Together has allowed me to combine my three passions – my love of children, my love of music, and my deep love of family – and to find a rich and rewarding career – all without having to leave my home town!
- A Mission of Diversity - Margaret-Ann Armour
I applied to various universities throughout Canada and heard back from the University of Alberta. They sent me a reply along with a pre-paid cable for my response. I accepted, and it was an incredible decision.
- I Ceased To Be Who I Was - Philip Currie
I loved dinosaurs from the time I was 6 years old. Then at 10, I read this book about the science of it. What it’s like to be a palaeontologist. I decided then and there that’s what I was going to be when I grew up.
- It Sure Beats Sitting at the Laptop - Michael Burns
They showed me this tooth – probably the biggest one I’ve seen to come out of Edmonton ever – and that was fairly exciting. Then, when they sent me down into the tunnel, there was a huge femur still sticking out of the wall, which was even more exciting.
- Time For a Change - Jenn Dahlen
I promised myself that I wouldn’t work in food service for the rest of my life.
- Traces: LA, Honolulu & Edmonton - Heather Zwicker
The truth is the idea for teaching the Edmonton course was seeded in something I did a few years ago.
- Transforming Health Care - Jim Swaffield
Alberta was in a transition time, and still is in terms of health care in my opinion. I think we’re leaders at looking at different models and different ways of doing things.
- Why I Chose Edmonton - Ada Tai
I came to Edmonton as an international student and was always asked the same question, Why did you choose to come to Edmonton?
