The undefeated University of Alberta Golden Bears football team are playing host to the University of Calgary Dinos this afternoon. The Dinos are coming off a great season where they made it all the way to the Vanier Cup, losing to the Queen’s Golden Gaels in the final game. The Bears have won both games so far this season, so it promises to be a great match-up.
Campus athletics are an important part of campus life for many of Alberta’s university students, either as team members or fans, and makes up an integral part of the campus community. They are also often overlooked when you think of what makes up a great university in Alberta. Campuses are so much more than collections of classrooms, assignments, students and faculty – they are places beyond scholarly inquiry that form integral components of our province’s community – from the arts to medicine, from business to public service, from libraries to athletics.
Campus athletics are supported by the whole campus community – university administration, alumni, fans, the Government of Alberta and students through fees approved by referendum all contribute to our athletics teams and their facilities.
