The Age of Audacity

50 Years of Ambition and Adventure at Calgary’s Own University

“The University of Calgary is a contemporary university, dynamic and spirited. Chameleonic, even brash, it punches above its weight in terms of time and temper, ever willing to take risks, brimming with purpose and exuberance. Vigorous, current, and futuristic in outlook, its tradition of excellence is nevertheless as diligent as that of a much older school burnished by dreaming spires. Certain of how far it has come, and optimistic about how far it can go, this place relishes its distinctiveness.

This intense history of the University of Calgary gathers the spirit of that place of higher learning into these pages.
