Student Life
At Keyano College, we believe that it’s important for our students to find a balance between their studies and student
activities. You know the old saying ‘All work and no play’ – well we don’t want you or your educational experience to be
dull. That is why we have worked hard to ensure that your time at Keyano in and out of the classroom is worth the time and
effort that you put in from Orientation Day to Convocation. We have worked with student leaders and representatives to
develop activities, events and services to help you achieve that perfect student- life balance.
