border on a large commercial district, that has everything a student could want, all within walking
distance! There is a grocery store, pharmacies, houseware & clothing stores, movie theatre,
bowling alley, numerous restaurants & lounges and more! Access to areas that are more difficult to walk to is
facilitated by the public
transit route, which has a stop outside of the College's main entrance.
GPRC has a special relationship with the surrounding community. We have built these ties through strong community
involvement and programs such as our children's
summer camps. There are many opportunities for our students to participate within the community at large, whether
it's taking advantage of the facilities
offered or by volunteering
their time to help others. Grande Prairie and area offer extensive walking/ cross-country ski trails, downhill
skiing, golf courses, a curling rink, hockey & skating arenas as well as the many facets of the new multiplex.
GPRC has something for everyone!
