Kelowna is the largest city in British Columbia's interior and its unique climate offers students a virtual four season playground. With world-class ski resorts within a short drive for incredible skiing and snowboarding in the winter, to kilometres of beaches along Okanagan Lake for swimming, water skiing, and wakeboarding in the summer, there is no shortage of leisure activities.
The city boasts museums, art galleries, theatre productions, ballet, fine restaurants and shops, and an active nightlife. At the Kelowna campus, life is a nice balance of work and play! The Okanagan is also a premier wine valley with award-winning vineyards and is home to several seasonal events.
