When international students like Acoba come to downtown Calgary, it isn’t long until they feel it’s hard to leave. The neighbourhood of East Village — just short steps east from where Bow Valley College’s main campus is located — is trendy, vibrant, and energised enough to captivate any young, ambitious learner.
Accessibility is a plus too. The college is within walking distance of several independent restaurants, coffee shops and businesses, and a major grocery store. Those in need of a little inspiration will be happy to know that the internationally recognised, award-winning Central Library and the historic Glenbow Museum are just a few steps away from campus too.
Of course, there are spaces galore for tranquillity as well — think lush parks, postcard-like bridges, towering mountains, expansive rivers and rolling cycling paths. What more could a busy student need?
