Alberta’s Destination University, the U of L attracts approximately 8,600 undergraduate and graduate students from around the world to campuses in Lethbridge and Calgary each year. They offer more than 150 undergraduate and 60 graduate programs in six Faculties and schools: Arts & Science, Education, Fine Arts, Health Sciences, Management and Graduate Studies.
Spanning 500 acres, the Lethbridge campus is known for its signature Arthur Erickson Building and University Hall, which is nestled in the southern Alberta coulees and overlooks the Oldman River.
There are more than 70 clubs on campus that provide social and athletic activities, travel, religious fellowship, and charitable and cultural support. Some clubs surf in California while others debate in Ottawa. Some have hosted speakers and sponsored conferences; some have presented art shows and music concerts.
Clubs provide opportunities to meet new people on campus, develop a support system, connect with other students in your program, or try out a new interest. You may even discover a hidden talent.
