Student Life at BVC

International Students Activities

Getting our students work-ready is one of our main goals at Bow Valley College. The International Education Office organizes activities for international students in our ESL and Career programs through the International Students Club. Activities change every term and can include: kayaking, bowling, daytrips to Banff or Drumheller or beyond, pub nights, karaoke, and much more. Information about the activities are regularly provided through our Facebook feeds as well as by mybvc email.
