When Michaela Demers was wrapping up her Grade 12 year in Calgary, she attended a uLethbridge information evening. “A current uLethbridge student was there and he told us hilarious tales of unforgivable winds and strange landforms called coulees,” Michaela recalls. “He was so inviting and positive that I decided right then and there I wanted to be a student with passion and pride for my university like him. I applied to uLethbridge that day!”
Fast-forward a few years — Michaela is now that student.
Part of the Education Undergraduate Society, Michaela represents uLethbridge in communities throughout Alberta.
“I describe uLethbridge in a single word: welcoming,” she says.
From potlucks to study-groups, Michaela says her fondness memories so far are the relationships she developed. “In PSI and PSII, we were super-close, inter-connected and shared the same goal. I feel supported and connected. I’ve found my niche; I am where I belong.”
