Ahead of the Herd

What is Ahead of the Herd?

Ahead of the Herd (AOTH) is geared towards students who are starting their studies at uLethbridge in the fall. AOTH is an opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and current students who have experienced the same excitement and nervousness of starting a post-secondary journey. Students can tour campus, virtually explore residence, and participate in live sessions designed to ensure a smooth transition! REGISTER TODAY
