I had the privilege of interviewing Rebecca, a first year student in the Land and Water program majoring in Land Reclamation. She enjoys learning about the environments complexity and the different compositions of it.
For students who wish to continue their education after attending Olds they can register for the Bachelor of Applied Science at Olds College or any other program of that nature at a variety of other institutions across the province. Career opportunities stemming from these educational experiences include conservation group coordinator, water quality technician, land reclamation technician, environmental consultant, agricultural fieldsman, and environmental technician to name a few.
If students are unsure of any of the material delivered in the class room there are a variety of books available in the library as well as many highly trained staff with years of experience in the industry. If you require any assistance finding anything in the library or on a website there are many skilled librarians who are ready and happy to assist you.
Rebecca recommends that students go into the program with an open mind as it will help you pick up on all of the important concepts and get the best learning experience possible.
