MacEwan University- Edmonton’s Second University

If you moved to Edmonton within the last 3 years, you may not know that MacEwan University was formerly known as Grant Macewan College. In fact, prior to 2009 this postsecondary institution was the sixth largest College in the province. Its historical roots date back to 1971, when it opened in what is now known as Strathcona High School. Over the years, MacEwan developed quality education and established itself as one of Alberta’s leading transfer institutions.

Macewan University currently offers 60 different programs such as: undergraduate degrees, applied degrees, diplomas, and certificates. In addition to their status change, MacEwan was also accepted as a member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada. They also rebranded by changing their name, school colours, and logo! (Did you know the new logo was architecturally inspired by MacEwan’s signature clock tower in the City Centre Campus?

This somewhat recent change is a tremendous benefit to current and future Edmonton residents. As Alberta’s Capital City, it is comforting to know that our future generations have local options when it comes to postsecondary education. Our “new” University, combined with future Downtown revitalizations, and a state-of-the-art arena, will make Edmonton Real Estate an attractive and highly-sought after market!

Choosing an Edmonton High School
If you’re thinking of moving or have recently relocated your family to a new community in Edmonton, one of the most important things to consider is which schools your growing children are going to attend. This is particularly so when it comes to choosing a high school, which is an exciting and important decision for both parents and kids.

Different high schools offer different kinds of programs that will appeal to different students. Some have Advanced Placement courses for kids who excel in academics and are interested in fast-tracking their first year of University. Others have robust sports programs for teens with basketball, football, or volleyball talent, while still others are known for their excellent arts and theatre programs.

The best way to find the right fit in a high school is to visit an open house.
