  • Luther College offers year-round campus and residence tours as well as one-on-one enrollment counselling.

Spring 2019 Alumni Profiles

Dr. Kimberley Samkoe (U'01) - Bachelor of Science

"I had heard that Luther provided a really personal experience and there were always going to be mentors, people to help you with class selection at Luther. And I'd heard really good things about the small class sizes - better student experience - and I did feel that was the case, especially compared to my friends."

Dr. Samkoe (U'01)
always knew her life would take her towards science and medicine, but she always thought it would be as a doctor. However, life happens and she found herself donning the white coat as a researcher. Now she works towards researching in the medical field, and has been awarded a five year research funding grant.
