LETHBRIDGE, AB – It’s been a long year for everyone and post-secondary students are no exception, but this fall we will likely see more normal activities at Lethbridge College.

Like at the University of Lethbridge, the College is planning to welcome more students to campus to start the fall semester.

President, Dr. Paula Burns says with health and safety in mind, they’re confident they can offer more on-campus experiences in September.

“We began with a limited number of on-campus labs and classes in the fall semester (2020), and we increased that number in the winter (2021). The success of this past year has given us confidence we will once again be able to offer even more on-campus experiences beginning in September,” said Burns in a news release Tuesday.

Specific details about which classes will be offered on-campus will be finalized in the coming months, but it’s expected every college program, except for those traditionally held online, will have an on-campus presence.

Over the past year, a sizeable portion of the college curriculum was delivered remotely.

“We have surveyed our students and heard how much they value the on-campus experience,” says Dr. Samantha Lenci, Lethbridge College Provost and Vice President – Academic. “We know it positively affects the learning outcomes of our students to receive hands-on training, and we know we can safely offer on-campus labs and classes because we have already done it successfully.”

Lethbridge College will continue to monitor public health guidelines and work with Alberta Health Services to ensure all proper guidelines are in place.
