  • Visited the WCVM for the grand opening of the BJ Hughes Centre for Clinical Studies. What a magnificent campus and a first rate veterinary school! 
  • After working here and retiring every fall I miss being on campus. The place has that old world university feel with the architecture and the old trees , the walkways and centre courtyard. Every year ...  read more »
  • Attended post-secondary education here a few years ago. The campus is beautiful at anytime throughout the year but especially spring fall. Outside of Thorvaldson with the fall leaves makes for picturesque scenery. The Engineering building is a hidden gem and you can usually find quite places to study upstairs.
  • I have a fondness for the U of S as my alma mater. They've continued to expand and improve programs as well as infrastructure. A fine and well respected institution, in a lovely city.
  • amazing campus,,,parking sucks...but they encourage you to take bus anyways,, guess how big is Saskatoon...i love the beautiful buildings, staff and faculty..everything here is awesome, students too:)
  • Just speaking of the campus itself: A wonderful place, but it's only pretty during the summer with all the flowers. During the school season, they usually plot of over all the plants after 1 week and then setup orange barricades for all the construction they will be doing.
  • Very beautiful campus - lots of trees, paths, and very architecturally beautiful buildings. I have had very good experiences with all the classes I have taken - professors are qualified and for the most part care about your education. People are pretty friendly and welcoming to everyone. The biggest downfall is the lack of parking and parking prices. You can pay for a pass, but it is expensive and typically still a 5-10 minute walk or more. Pay parking lots are too expensive for the average student. Our bus system is such a fail that driving and paying for parking is often necessary. The arts parking lot is probably the best (lots of spots and not too cramped) but it often fills up. Admissions applications into the various colleges can be a little vague (can't easily make changes) so filling out the application with a counselor is ideal.
