A group of students from Creighton Community School is heading for Saskatoon today. High School Guidance Counselor Joe Kowalchuk says they will spend the next few days at the Northern Administration Student Association Conference. He says this creates an opportunity for students from the north to experience what life would be like at the University of Saskatchewan. He explains they get to go and stay in the dorms, they get to attend a number of classes and a number of activities so they get the sense of what it would be like to be on campus and be at the university to help them make that decision.
They also get a tour of Sask Polytechnic. Kowalchuk says their travel is funded and they get to stay in the dorms so they can only take five students but it’s a really good event for students who otherwise wouldn’t have that opportunity.
