Campus Life

Zoo summer hours begin

The Spring 2012 semester has come to a close and only a quiet murmur propagates through many of the campus hallways, and yet the University of Lethbridge is still a vibrant, busy place.

A strong contingent of students, staff and faculty will remain busy through the summer months, and for the first time in recent memory, the Zoo will be open for everyone to enjoy.

In past years, the Zoo closed at the end of the spring semester and would re-open again in September. This year, the Zoo will be re-opening its doors on Monday, May 7.

The Zoo will offer a great summer menu that includes numerous Zoo classics and some new summer flavours to spice things up. Specials on libations will be available every day with savoury offerings for all tastes.

A great new addition to the Zoo's atmosphere is the bright, comfortable outdoor furniture that populates the patio. New seating, tables and umbrellas promise a delightful place to enjoy the best the Zoo has to offer during the upcoming Lethbridge summer.

The Zoo will be open from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Wednesday, and 11a.m. to 7 p.m. (with Happy Hour running from 4 to 7 p.m.) on Thursday and Friday.
