Interactive experience awaits prospective students at University of Lethbridge Open House

Excited to provide an in-person experience once again to prospective students and their families, the University of Lethbridge’s annual Open House is unlike any that’s been offered before. The event has been reimagined with input from current students, faculty members and staff — the result is a new, fun and interactive experience that showcases all ULethbridge has to offer.

Open House takes place Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the main Lethbridge campus and gives future students the chance to explore programs, careers and work-integrated learning opportunities, connect with other future students, learn what to expect in the first year of study and much more.

“We are thrilled to welcome future students and their families to campus again and engage them in the ULethbridge experience,” says Asheley Cowie, manager of national recruitment. “We have incredible opportunities, academics and support — we want students to experience them in an entertaining, hands-on way.”

While the basics of Open House remain, such as campus tours, the chance to explore programs and student services through information sessions, and the ability to apply for on-the-spot admission, a host of fun and engaging activities have been added to the jam-packed day. The highlight — a Crack the Code challenge that takes students through Science Commons and once completed correctly, enters them in a draw for one semester of tuition.

People from all areas of ULethbridge have joined together to create an interactive and special day we think future students will love. Participants can explore music technology software, participate in a financial trading simulation, learn how to bead from an Indigenous artisan, test their knowhow by starting their own business or even build a tower out of marshmallows,” adds Cowie. “And of course, all our colleagues are eager to answer questions about programs, work-integrated and experiential learning opportunities, student supports and anything else they want to know!”

High school students who apply for admission before October 31, 2022, are eligible to win a $1,000 tuition credit. Open House is for anyone considering post-secondary studies or graduate school. For more information, including a complete list of activities and registration information, visit
