Medicine Hat College Campus

The college has been an instrumental part of the community for decades, and it's changed dramatically since officially opening in 1965. At that time it was actually operating in space provided by Medicine Hat High School, and it wasn't until 1971 that the Medicine Hat College moved onto their own brand new campus.  

In 1983 the neighbouring Cultural Centre opened, and in the last decade alone several new wings of the campus have been constructed along with a new library. Centennial Hall also opened in 2005 and made the main entrance the dramatic focal point that the college had been missing. Yes, this place has changed a lot. 

Despite not staying in the Hat for my post-secondary education, upon returning I've ended up doing a lot of work for them with Stream Media in helping to create a few of their recruiting videos and College Day productions. Last year MHC provided education to 8844 students, and with so much recent growth you can bet that the college is going to continue to be a hub for a lot of locals.
