Fall 2013 Issue

SAM - Southern Alberta Magazine

In this issue of SAM we are demonstrating that there really are no limits.

Like the evolution from summer to autumn, this time of year is all about change. This is evident in the physical transformation that takes place throughout the region as southern Alberta bursts alive with the fiery colours of the season. On campus, that energy is matched by our students whose return signifies the start of another academic year.

This semester marked some significant changes at the U of L that we’re happy to highlight in this issue of SAM, including physical changes to campus thanks to the successful completion of construction, a soon-to-be-ratified institutional Strategic Plan and the early stages of planning for the Destination Project. The stories here provide a glimpse into the amazing work that continues to define the University of Lethbridge as one of Canada’s leading academic and research institutions.

I would be remiss if I didn’t also mention that we are thrilled to welcome astronaut Col. Chris Hadfield as speaker for the 2014 Calgary Alumni & Friends Dinner this March! Tickets go on sale this month, so don’t miss out on your opportunity to hear from someone who’s life and career truly exemplify that the sky is no longer the limit.

I hope you enjoy.
