Our History

The Students’ Association of Grande Prairie Regional College incorporated July 11th 1989, However we believe the Student Association of Grande Prairie Regional College has existed at least since 1977. We currently represent several different campuses across Alberta including Fairview campus, Hinton campus, Edson campus and our Jasper campus.  Throughout our 25 years we have achieved many wins for students. Most recently SAGPRC underwent renovations in both the office and Howlers. We are now better set up to meet the needs of our students in a warm, welcoming environment. In the past we have hosted several events for students such as hypnotists, comedians and other live acts. Currently SAGPRC is focused on becoming a more well rounded organization, reaching out to all our students with a variety of programs and services.
