This university gives back what you put into it. The Faculty of Heath Sciences especially, is extremely driven by student success and engagement. If you are willing to show up and demonstrate consistent work ethic, it will be noticed. The University of Lethbridge is the ideal place to explore your life and career goals, because you’ll be supported every step of the way. I always felt like I could succeed because there was so much support available in every area of campus. I know my time there set me up for success in graduate school, but I am sad to be leaving such an incredible school.”
