Organization of Residence Students (O.R.S.)
The University of Lethbridge aims to provide convenient living accommodations together with services and programs from which students may secure special educational, social and cultural advantages. The University is concerned not only with the physical environment within the Residence, but also with providing an educational and social environment to aid the personal growth of each resident.
ORS would like to welcome you to life on the University of Lethbridge Campus. We have a brand new council this year and we're motivated and energetic! Here is a little bit about our structure and the people who represent you.
ORS is comprised of all residents of the University of Lethbridge Residence who are either student, or in the case of the Family Townhomes, any family members who are over the age of 18.
The Residence Council is the executive body of the ORS. Each Resident Assistant holds a position on Residence Council. Residence Council represents student needs and concerns, and allocates ORS resources to best serve students. The Council's meeting time will be determined by Council at the beginning of the Fall semester. You are invited and have the right to participate in these meetings. Just let your RA know ahead of time so he or she can pencil you in on the agenda and inform you of where the meeting is scheduled to be held. If you would like to obtain an agenda or minutes of a week's meeting, please see one of the executives on council.
The Residence Council also helps the ORS President to gather information to bring to the Student’s Union General Assembly that he or she meets with once a month. The choices made by the Student’s Union can drastically affect what occurs on campus, so make sure you voice your own opinions to the Residence Council or at least pass them along to your RA so your ideas can be acknowledged.
