“My two years at Lethbridge College were fulfilling and successful. After transferring from another post-secondary institution, I was looking for a place that would be welcoming and accommodating to my needs. Lethbridge College was that place, thanks to the faculty and staff that supported me through my Civil Engineering Technology program. During my education I learned valuable skills and methods that assisted me in beginning my career following graduation. I cherish my time spent at the College, as it has helped shape my career and future.”
“I am a firm believer that effort yields results, so I threw myself into my studies and was rewarded with student awards acknowledging my effort and circumstances. Because of those awards, I was able to complete my diploma. Student awards change lives, giving people with nothing the opportunity and time to become something that they themselves can be proud of.”
