  • A crucial part of the community and one of Edmonton's most venerable institutions. I recommend the historical walking tour, to learn more about U of A's rich and fascinating history.
  • 2 years wasted. You'll get treated badly by the school and the system. Parking costs an arm and leg. Lots of TAs and profs don't even like teaching, or don't know how to teach (they do research, not teach). Also you get no experience, just a degree.... if you're lucky. Super friendly classmates and fun activities on campus tho I'll admit.
  • Excellent Hospital! It is, but the receptionist from the MRI Dept on April 12, 2017 in the morning was so rude. She's really racist and no respect for the non-white Canadian..
  • They do not create successful people. They accept successful people and then take the credit.
  • Most of the bad reviews are from people who didn't know what they were getting into. This is not surprising as high schools often lack properly trained counselors that can steer students in the right direction.
