According to Margo, "The day I drove on the Alberta Campus of SVCC, I knew I was in the right place. The campus was very beautiful and presented a tranquil atmosphere which made me feel right at home. The counselors, faculty and staff were very warm and welcoming and helped me with the enrollment process, financial aid, and selecting my first classes. I felt really good about myself and my educational experience at SVCC from beginning to end!"
