Post-secondary students head back to school

It was back to school for the post-secondaries in our city on Tuesday.

Staff at Lethbridge College say it has been a busy time for them as there is a rise of students this year including over 1400 who attended the New Student Orientation day.

“We’re pleased to say that our enrollment numbers are looking really strong across all of our programs. Enrollment at this point is up about 10 per cent over this time last year, and of course, we’ll know more details on that in the next couple of weeks as things settle down. But we’re very pleased to know we’re up about 300 students or so over this time last year and it’s looking really positive,” says Lindsay Workman, the associate dean of students affairs at the college.

The University of Lethbridge also welcomed new students to the post-secondary on Tuesday.

Staff with the U of L say 960 students will take up housing on campus including a record 100 international students.
