What to expect

We know you probably have questions, but don’t worry, that is what we’re here for! There are various events leading up to the start of the semester to help you feel prepared for your first day. Summer Orientation Tour is an opportunity to get familiar with campus, meet with faculty and connect with future peers in an informal and fun way. There will be a campus scavenger hunt, meet and greet and fireside chat and barbecue, so don’t forget to bring your supporters with you! We’ll also be hosting various student workshops like Computer Fundamentals, Fundamentals of Canvas and Financial Aid so you’ll feel ready for your first semester.

Most importantly, your first official day on campus starts with New Student Orientation (NSO) on Sept. 3. This is the day where you’ll learn all about what it means to be a Kodiak. You’ll meet your peers in your program, grab a barbecue lunch with the Lethbridge College Students’ Association (LCSA) and receive a Kodiaks swag bag!

I would like to welcome you to our vibrant and loving college found on the traditional lands of the Blackfoot people.
