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.

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.
Living at Luther
Luther College High School dormitory students benefit from being part of a small, safe, close-knit residence community. This supportive community enables students to grow both personally and in relationship with others. The dormitory program stresses respect for oneself, others, one’s surroundings, and learning. Out of these emphases grows maturity, independence, responsibility, and self-discipline.
Most rooms are double occupancy and come furnished with beds, desks and built-in closets. Washrooms are newly renovated. Resident students have access to a student lounge and wireless internet. All meals and snacks are provided in the Luther College High School Cafeteria.
The dorm program offers a variety of social activities for students such as movie nights, karaoke nights, outdoor camping, an annual ski trip, open gym time, games night and more.
A dean of men, a dean of women and several residence assistants supervise the dorm student’s seven-days-a-week. A school nurse is also available to students.
The lounge is a great place to hang out and spend time with friends while living in the dorms. With a big-screen television for movies and Nintendo Wii, air hockey, table tennis, a pool table and foosball, there’s something for everyone!
The cafeteria is a central place in Luther College High School, providing places to meet and study as well as a place to eat. The cafeteria staff prepares three meals a day, brunches on Saturday and Sunday, and afternoon and evening snacks for all dorm students. Dorm students are required to have breakfast in the cafeteria. We hope that a complete breakfast will allow students to perform well in class and in their daily interactions.
The Blue Room
The Blue Room is a formal reception room. Located in the girl’s dorm building, the space is open to all dorm students. The Blue Room is used for teas and receptions, as well as a place for dorm students to practice their piano, quietly read and study, or simply to spend time together.
