For the last few months, we have been very busy with projects to make your experience with us even better. We have been listening to your suggestions and have added a few of our own. Here are some areas that are new or improved:
1. Website: You may notice that ALC pages on the University of Lethbridge website look quite different. We would like to highlight a few for you:
Returning Students Page: We have created this section just for you as a returning student. This streamlines information as you are experienced with our services. New students have their own section; but you may find that visiting there is a valuable refresher. If you explore the tabs on the left, you will find new topic areas that are broken down by subject, updated information and frequently asked questions. This section also contains hyperlinks to other pages that are applicable to the topic area.
Resources: If you select the top tab for “Resources”, you will find some links that are for your convenience. Need to find a campus service? The most frequently accessed ones are here.
Want to save time before your appointment or get some assistance? Our fillable “Forms” section allows you to type your information. Just make sure you remember to sign your form with ALC staff in our offices.
Contacts: Everything you need to know about how to reach us and what we do is found under the “Contacts” tab at the top.
2. Distraction Control Exam Room (SU063): We are incredibly excited to share a very special project with you. Over the summer, we have been building a new exam room in the Student Union building. This facility will replace our overflow rooms for up to 16 students when we do not have space in our private rooms. There are individual carrels, special features and a carefully planned layout. You will find sound and visual barriers to reduce your distractions. All our technology is installed. Video will be coming soon.
3. New Clockwork Video and Manual: We recognize that sometimes when under pressure or late in the evening, you may forget the details of how to book those very important exams and the deadline is about to pass. We have created an easy to follow manual with a lot of visuals and an updated video that can both be conveniently accessed remotely.
We look forward to seeing you soon and supporting your academic needs for the coming year. When you visit, let us know what you think of the improvements!
