Lethbridge Universities & Colleges
Canada's first public community college, Lethbridge College has been helping people get a head start on careers since 1957. From only 25 students, the school now exceeds 7,000 each year. Today, Lethbridge College offers diplomas, certificates, apprenticeship, pre-employment and applied degree programs for more than 70 career areas.
The impressive structure of the university sits impressively in the arms of the coulees, high on the banks of the Old Man River. Renowned for its architecture, it was designed by Arthur Erickson to reflect its prairie surroundings. Small class sizes, high-calibre of professors, and world-class facilities make the U of L a respected institution that is not always well-known to the Canadian public at large, but is a treasure to the students and the Lethbridge community. Visitors are welcome to take in the stunning scenery of the area. The public is also welcome to attend various events in its theatres and sport facilities. The Art Gallery should not be missed, carrying a collection that is worth millions.
