Extracurriculars!

Did You Know?

  • Did you know there is a 3rd floor to the boy's dorm? It was traditionally assigned to upper level students who were more mature & responsible. Students who lived up there in the 1940’s confessed, in hushed tones, to having a radio when those devices were against school policy.

  • The first annual Senior Girls Volleyball Tournament was held in 1998 and is still going strong today!

  • When the College was first looking to relocate from Melville to Regina, it considered land at College & Winnipeg, College & Broad, and 23rd & Albert, finally settling on 18 acres of land on the west end of property owned by Government House, now called Royal Street.

  • Do you know someone in Kindergarten to Grade 8 that would like to be part of the Luther Family? Encourage them to join the Future Luther Student program!

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

Greetings new students! This week's edition of the blog focuses on our extra-curricular activities at Luther. Whether you are interested in Chess, Badminton, Debate, Improv, Football or any number of activities; whether you are artsy, sporty (or both!), there are exciting opportunities for you to find and hone your passions.

Learning new skills, meeting new people, and contributing positively to your community are just some of the reasons why our students decide to join extracurricular programing at Luther. 

Extracurricular activity is also a key part of Luther's philosophy of educating the "whole student" -- meaning that we value your contributions as an individual with many gifts, both in and outside of the classroom. 

Our extracurricular magazine is a great way to learn about what Luther has to offer outside the classroom. We think it's a great idea to have a look at the magazine and start getting excited about extracurricular life at Luther! 

Here is the link to the magazine on our website: https://issuu.com/lutherwebsite/docs/117583_luther_co_mag_cropped_low_re. 

To help get you started, we are running a contest for newly registered students this month (prize: a Luther hoodie!). 

All you have to do is: 

1. Have a look at the magazine. 

2. Pick 3 activities you are most interested in or excited about (or maybe you have an idea for a club or activity that isn't listed -- let us know!)

3. Write to our new student coordinator at julia.mitchell@luthercollege.edu by April 10th with your response to be entered into the draw for the Luther swag. Include your first and last name.
