Oki, Hello

Welcome to the University of Lethbridge and congratulations on your decision to continue your educational endeavors. This decision can be such an exciting, yet challenging time in your life. However, in the end can be the most rewarding. My name is Roberta Smallbones and I am the Native Student Advisor on campus. You can locate me in the Students Union Building on the first floor in the Registrar’s Office. I am a member of the Piikani Nation. I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Criminal Justice and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. The University of Lethbridge proves to be innovative and progressive in all areas including support and resources for students. As the Native Student Advisor, I am here to help you get in touch with any support agencies and provide referrals on and off campus. I welcome you to come and see me or even stop by my office to say hi. I look forward to meeting you. I wish you all the best in your endeavors.

Oki, hello

Just like many of you, I am new to the University of Lethbridge and am trying to make my way through the maze of buildings on campus. What I have discovered in the short time I have been here is that there is a wonderful support team that awaits you.

I have worked as an Administrative Assistant in Disability Services at Lethbridge College and at Wood's Homes - our local youth shelter. In additon to the College and University, I worked as an Educational Assistant at Lethbridge School District #51 for a period of time too. Although I loved all these roles, I am looking forward to learning new things and adding some of my touch to the U of L.

I wish you all the best during your time with us and look forward to meeting each and every one of you.
