If you’re a pretty good student, you’ll be interested to know that the University of Calgary (U of C for short) gives away over $12 million in scholarships, awards, and bursaries to undergraduate students each and every year. You have to like Canadian universities that are so generous.
You may also be interested to know that as far as Canadian universities go, this one has quite a strong athletic department with over 40 (to date) athletes having won Olympic medals! More of a fan than an athlete? U of C rewards school spirit, too. Every time you attend a varsity game and cheer on your team, you earn points that you can redeem for t-shirts, mugs, or even an iPad!
Sounds pretty cool so far, doesn’t it? So, let’s explore this school a little more, shall we?
