Student life candid

Student life starts at SAMRU: Make the most of your time outside the classroom

So you’re starting at Mount Royal University this fall. You’ve registered for your classes, perhaps taken a campus tour, and you’re ready to start your academic journey at one of the best (in our entirely unbiased opinion) post-secondary institutions in Alberta. But did you know that getting involved outside the classroom is crucial to your overall success at university?

Of course, going to class and getting a degree is why you’re at MRU. But going to university is so much more than just going to class.

Whatever your goals, we’re here to help you succeed inside and outside the classroom. You can find meaningful opportunities to get involved, learn new skills, and build your resume right at your Students’ Association! Make new friends, make a difference, and make your university experience memorable; your student experience is yours to define.
