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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.

What happens on a Spend-A-Day visit?
Grade 8 students are encouraged and welcome to schedule a "spend-a-day" visit. Grade 8 students are paired with Grade 9 ambassador students. They attend class, chapel and have lunch together. The day begins at 8:15 a.m. with the prospective student meeting her or his ambassador in the main office. The school day ends at 3:15 p.m. Students should adhere to the dress code (no jeans, offensive logos, or ripped clothing please). Lunch is provided in the cafeteria at no charge.
When can I come Spend-A-Day?
Spend-A-Day visits are offered November to May, when regular classes are in session. Spend-A-Day visits have concluded for the 2017-18 school year as we are now fully booked for May 2018.
How do I book a Spend-A-Day?
All Spend-A-Day visits must be pre-arranged and confirmed with the main office. Please consider your first and second choice dates carefully.
