Redeemer University College
Redeemer University College is located in Ancaster, ON in Canada, just on the outskirts of Hamilton, ON. Founded in 1982, it is a liberal arts and sciences university with degrees in some programs up to the honours level. It is a Christian University based on the Reformed tradition though students from all denominations attend. (I myself am non-denominational).
Redeemer is one of the only Universities left in Ontario where you can only apply by mail, not OUAC (Ontario Universities Application Center) and the application fee is much lower than the cost of OUAC. The average class size is 24 but can range between 3 and 100 students, depending on the course.
Redeemer University College is a member of the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), and the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU).
The University works with McMaster University in Hamilton, ON by allowing students to take courses between the two schools with no additional application required, only a letter from the school.
Redeemer has a dry campus, with both townhouses and apartments available on the premises for first through to final year students (depending on availability). It is manditory for all first years under the age of 21 to stay on campus for their first year unless living with family. Tuition, for those on campus, covers the cost of not only classes and accomidations but also a food plan for the on-campus grocery store. Security is available 24/7 and provides a walk program at night for female students.
