The University of Alberta is one of the top-funded universities in the country.
- A Big Giant Hippie Sport - Disa Brownfield
It’s a good way to meet people. You don’t socialize just with your team. You talk to the person who’s marking you. That’s completely not normal in other sports.
- A Lesser Known Edmonton - Todd Smith
Within the next year I had come out to my family, which was only possible with the great friends I had met and grown to love, both within the gay and greater Edmonton communities.
- 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.
- A Soul Awakening in Edmonton - Judy Wollman
A profound moment happened that got me off the street: my neighbor offered to give me some light. I was very skeptical, yet her place was filled with joyous, beautiful, spiritual energy, and I wanted to experience more.
- A Strange Way of Growing On You - Riki Roy
We were living in Tanzania when our young son decided he wanted to do nanotechnology. I found that the University of Alberta would be starting this program. But where was this place called Edmonton?
- 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.
- An Unusual Move - Roman Doshchak
Obviously moving to Edmonton is a little bit unusual for someone who had it as good as I did.
- City Canvas: A Wonderful Surprise - Mark Wilson
What does the Garneau Tree, art, and getting your start in radio have in common? Watch Mark's videos to find out.
- 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.
- 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.
- I Was Leaving For Good - Darlene Marchuk
My entire world turned upside down and I found myself in palliative care at the University of Alberta Hospital.
- Keeping Busy in Edmonton - Andrea Ryan
I have known Edmonton my whole life. I was born here, I attended university here, I got married here. During this time, I have lived both in Edmonton and in its surrounding communities, and I love it.
- 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.
- Pulse of the City - Melanie Teichroeb
I'm a small-town girl, born in the Parkland County and raised on dreams I found etched in the prairie sky.
- Queen of Trees - Sheena Moore
At 8 years old I had declared myself Queen of the Trees, and here I was about to go start a life in the city. I took one last look at my little town before it disappeared into its valley. Buildings and skyscrapers would become my new forest.
- Spring Tryouts - Guillaume Petit
Imagine 4 football players in a car driving 48 hours nonstop to get here for spring camp. It was a cheap way to go, only about $700 for the car, gas and everything between Quebec City and Edmonton.
- The Wild West - Dr. David Bressler
Edmonton is a young city in a lot of ways. I don’t want to say it’s the Wild West, but it kind of is. There’s a lot of opportunity for people who are ambitious and want to try and do things and make an impact themselves.
- U of A Panda Bears - Anneka Baker
Meet Anneka Baker. Originally from Ottawa, Ontario she came to Edmonton to play on the University of Alberta’s Panda Bears women’s basketball team.
- All the Stories Stay Together - Lisa Thang
One of Lisa's favourite memories involves chopstick day, and she was really excited to find out that it still existed when she returned to Kildare to teach.
- Home Of Strange Records - Aaron Levin
Folkways was this label from New York City by Moses Asch. It was a very forward-thinking, independent label. Moses wanted to capture sounds that would’ve otherwise been lost because they weren’t commercially viable.
- 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.
- 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.
- A Small Holiday - Patricia Proskurniak
The first night out for my daughter after having her first child was at The Rev (now the Starlite Room), where we had to leave Sarah Slean’s performance early.
- This Art Thing - Dawn Detarando
I'm from Boston originally, so when I came to Red Deer years ago, they said, “Oh yeah, there's this thing, this art thing, you might want to go to.”
