It is expected that the membership of each advisory committee is representative of the respective industry, community and/or specific initiative associated with Medicine Hat College. Representation from related educational institutions (e.g. high school or university), students currently registered in the respective program, and past graduates from the respective program, is also recommended.
You can also connect with students on campus directly by volunteering your time. MHC is always looking for alumni volunteers to help out with special events like Student Orientation, Convocation, Career Fairs, and more.
My favourite part of being a Rattler was the environment. It felt like a family away from home. It was a small, tight-knit community that helped make the move as smooth as it could be at that age. I developed some wonderful friendships that are still a large part of my life.
Education taught me how to work with and manage people.
I always have warm feelings when I visit the college. It’s growing. That what I like about going over there. It’s the future.
I’m still really impressed at the quality of courses and instruction I got at the college. I realize now how I still use things I learned there in my own teaching. At the time, it was about staying home and saving some money but it turned out to be a really good thing for me. I’m lucky to have had that experience at MHC.
I had a solid foundation coming out of Medicine Hat College. Nancy Brown's organic chem was always my litmus test for how hard or challenging a course was in university. I would encourage everyone to stay at home and attend MHC for a year or two.
I believe the more education any citizen receives the better it is for the whole community. It certainly changed my life. For me, MHC was the first little step, or maybe a bit of a stumble but I learned so much that year.
It was a nice, soft place to land.
Through the many positive experiences and acquaintances established, I left MHC with the basic foundation to move on and build a solid career in the oil and gas industry.
Attending MHC enabled me to fulfil my dream of becoming a nurse, and with that start I have been blessed with an amazing 38-year career. My passion in life has always been to care for others, and my nursing career has fulfilled this goal. I am very proud to be an MHC nursing graduate!
After 12 years of working and raising a family, I felt it was time to make a change. It was easy and fun to fall back into a learning atmosphere at MHC.
After College Prep, I enrolled in the Environmental Reclamation Technician program and now work for Cypress County.
Both of the programs I completed - Massage Therapy and Physical Therapist Assistant - made me a well-rounded therapist. MHC gave me a wonderful experience which helped me to become a successful spa owner.
MHC has been instrumental in allowing me to continually expand my knowledge, which has assisted me as an employee and business owner.
Knowledge is power and MHC enabled me to learn more in two years than I had in the previous 10. With my extensive training, I was given an opportunity to teach massage therapy in St. Lucia in 2002 which is definitely one of the highlights of my career.
Tony studied Education at MHC and is currently living in Brooks, Alberta and working for Cenovus Energy. He is married with three children and enjoys golfing, camping and sea dooing.
I wanted to work in the outdoors since I was young, and the Ecotourism program was the perfect way to combine work and play. I am fortunate enough to work where I play, in an area that I love, doing what I'm passionate about.
Being an interpreter for Parks Canada is my dream job.
MHC was a great bridge between high school and university, teaching you independence and that your future was your responsibility.
Barry studied Welding at MHC and is currently working for Bromley Mechanical in Medicine Hat.
His favourite memories of MHC are playing foosball at lunch and instructors Abe and John.
MHC was probably the best choice for me as it was a stepping stone to university and big city living.
It prepared me educationally, socially and emotionally for a successful educational career!
