Ambrose University College - The Doors Open at Alberta's Newest Post-Secondary Institution

    CALGARY, Sept. 20 /CNW/ - Ambrose University College (Ambrose) today
commemorates the development of a new campus with a special celebration for
all Calgarians at Olympic Plaza. Festivities include music, displays,
presentations and the opportunity for Calgarians to meet Ambrose leaders and
learn more about our campus.
    "We want to share our fortune and good news with all Calgarians," said
Ambrose Co-President George Durance. "Our new campus, located on Springborough
Blvd (south of 17th Ave off 69th Street SW) is under construction and will
open for the 2008 school year."
    "This campus provides new opportunities for students to get their
University degree in a Christian environment," said Ambrose Co-president Riley
Coulter. Ambrose is a fully accredited post-secondary institution offering
undergraduate degrees in Arts and Sciences and Theology and a graduate
Seminary program.
    The new forty acre campus site will accommodate up to 2000 students
helping ease Alberta's shortage of post-secondary space. "We are excited about
moving into the campus next year," said Ambrose Student Body President, David
Klassen. "The new facilities will provide students with an excellent learning
environment and great extra curricular activities." This year, students will
continue to study at the downtown campus.
    The school athletic teams will now be known as the Ambrose Lions. Our
athletes compete in men's hockey, men's and women's basketball, men's and
women's volleyball and men's and women's futsal. The teams compete in the
Alberta Colleges Athletic League (ACAL).
