The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!
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.
Luther graduates have gone on to universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Pennsylvania State, McGill, Queen’s and other renowned educational institutions throughout Canada, North America and the world.
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 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.
Through the A Time To Build capital campaign, we have added 46,897 square feet of space to Luther College High School, including the Semple gymnasium - the largest high school gym in Regina.
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.
Luther students, even though from diverse social and cultural backgrounds, have the opportunity to be part of tightly woven community of students, parents, alumni, teachers and staff. Typically 12% of the school’s student body originates from outside of Canada.
About the Luther College Logo
Held within the Luther logo are the cross, the circle, and the leaves -- all symbols of Luther College’s reason for being. The cross obviously symbolizes Christ, in whom is found God’s will and design for all people; the leaves attached to the cross indicate the capacity to grow in knowledge and understanding of the world and its creator. Many also see the cross and leaves as representing a tree of knowledge. As truth is often represented by a circle for completeness, the circle surrounding the head of the cross refers to the constant search for truth within the Lutheran tradition even while realizing one will never fully hold it on this side of eternity.
The current Luther logo was designed by Judy Swanson of Northfield, Minnesota, who was connected to Saint Olaf College and Camrose Lutheran College in Alberta, for the University campus using the College’s colours of blue and white. The design made its public appearance in 1974. The High School campus later adopted the same logo but used their school colours of black and gold. The goal of the logo for the University campus was to be distinctive from the University of Regina as well to represent the values of the College.
