Stop by Doggy De-stress during exam week

It’s final exam week, which can be a stressful time for many students. To help ease the burden, Lethbridge College will offer Doggy De-stress this week. Pooches of a variety of sizes and kinds will be available for tail wags and petting sessions in TE1228 Monday through Thursday. Doggy De-stress wouldn’t be possible without support from volunteers across campus who share their canine besties for these sessions. Give those dogs a bone!

Have you visited the Bookstore lately?

Take the stress out of your holiday shopping by visiting the Lethbridge College Bookstore. This is final exam week, so campus is surprisingly quiet, and the Bookstore is holding a customer appreciation event, offering 25 per cent off college gear and giftware. The store is located in PA1110. It’s open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, except for Thursday when it opens at 9 a.m. Think about the students, alumni and proud family members who have a connection to Lethbridge College now or anytime from the past six decades.

Food for Fines campaign continues

If you have overdue books or other materials from the Lethbridge College Buchanan Library, now’s the time to return them. Donate a nonperishable food item at the library and you can have outstanding overdue fines forgiven (some restrictions apply) in this 30th iteration of Food for Fines. Not only will you be clearing your slate, but you’ll be helping the Lethbridge College Students’ Association Food Bank to meet the needs of students now and into the new year. This year’s Food for Fines theme is SOS, Support Our Students, Stock Our Shelves. Even if you don’t have overdue materials, pop by with a donation and you know your gift will be going directly to students.

Used book sale raises money for student emergency fund

Looking for something new to read?
