Ensuring that learners are prepared to “Arrive and Thrive” is the goal of Lethbridge College’s annual New Student Orientation. Nearly 1,100 new students will take part in a half-day of sessions and activities designed to get them ready for student life on Tuesday, Sept. 4, before classes begin for first-year and returning students on Wednesday, Sept. 5.
