The choral tradition at Luther began in 1914. In addition to in-school performances, the choir has shared its ministry of music with many congregations across Canada and has performed regularly on local and national radio and television shows, at contests and festivals.
The Tuck Shop for snacks was at the bottom of the south stairs going to what is now the cafeteria. The legendary beans in a cone were considered a healthier & cheaper alternative to what students purchased across the street at the Aintree.
Students admitted to Luther College are not required to be Lutheran or Christian. By welcoming students of all faiths and religious backgrounds, Luther College enjoys a richly diverse student body.
The first LIT was held on January 31, 1953. That year it was a one-day tournament involving sixteen teams from Southern Saskatchewan. All preliminary games were played cross court, two games at a time.

In the late 1920's, during an in-house baseball tournament, Rex Schneider entered a team called "Prof Schneider's Battling Lions." This is the first hint that someday Luther teams would be known as the Lions.
The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
The gym officially opened July 8, 1951. The Sunday afternoon celebration, attended by 1,500 people, featured speeches followed by an evening celebration with another 1,500 people in attendance to hear the Luther Choir and the RCMP Band.
Beth Drozda (HS’84, U’87)
Beth Drozda, in her first term of service, is new to the Board in 2016. She is a Senior Human Resources Consultant with Access Communications, and has worked in the HR field for thirteen years. As a senior HR Generalist, a large part of her role is in employee development, through performance reviews, training and development, and encouraging ongoing personal and professional development.
Beth is an alumna of both Luther College High School (HS’84) and Luther College at the University of Regina (U’87). She is also the proud parent of a LCHS 2011 graduate.
She has always felt a connection to Luther, both as an aluma, and through the Luther Bach Choir, of which she has been a member for over twenty-five years. As a self-declared “strong advocate of life-long learning,” and one who “encourage[s] others to push their boundaries to see what they can learn,” Beth is grateful at the opportunity to give back by lending her professional knowledge to support the Board of Regents. She also looks forward “valuable experience” that her time as a Board member will provide to her.
As a member of the Board of the Access Communications Children’s Fund, Beth also works to help raise and donate money to programs aimed at helping children and youth at risk and in need. She is also the President of the Luther Bach Choir.
