We welcome you to the University of Lethbridge, and thank you for making the choice to come stay with us! We’re looking forward to a great year with all of you.
Please extend a warm welcome to Terri Thomas who has graciously accepted the position of Associate Manager of Hospitality Services. Terri comes to us from her recent position of Manager of Conference & Event Services and has a wealth of information to share with us. Hospitality Services is comprised of Housing, Food, Conference & Event Services and Youth Science Programs. Terri has been a strong team member in this group, and we look forward to her energy and zeal in her new position.
The role of our team in Hospitality Services is to assist you in making your stay with us enjoyable and successful. Over the years, students keep telling us that staying in Residence provided the best opportunities to make life-long friendships. Residence isn’t just a place to stay; it’s a place where each of you contributes to a community life, the way you want your community to function. Our Residence Assistants and the Organization of Residence Students, through their effort and dedication, are credited with making the Rez Life experience enjoyable. Please take advantage of all the activities offered through the Residence and the University in general. This is your opportunity to expand your horizons. It has been proven that students living in residence integrate into the community better than non-residence students, and achieve higher grades. I think we can all agree this is good news!
Please take advantage of our new 1st Choice Savings Centre for Sport and Wellness. The University is pursuing several building projects to enhance your education. Enjoy!
I encourage and invite you to let us know how we can be of help, ask questions of us when you aren’t sure of something, and above all, please feel free to make suggestions or comments on how we can best serve you. Campus Housing is a very dynamic place that is continuously evolving and improving. With your input, we can develop goals and make operational changes within our resources that fit with your needs, likes, and dislikes. Drop by and let us know how we’re doing.
I wish you well and lots of success in the upcoming year.
Manager, Hospitality Services
