Clear YOUR HEAD FILL YOUR MIND First semesters are always exciting, and they can also be overwhelming. Just ask first-year student Armi-Lee Amerila.
“My first semester was an adjustment,” she recalls. “But it was also the most memorable year of my life.” From our extraordinary campus and facilities, to student services, academic programs, small class sizes and beyond, students are central to all we do at uLethbridge. We will help you transition to university life through important events like Ahead of the Herd and New Student Orientation. When you begin your first year, you’ll be officially welcomed to the uLethbridge family of scholars at Commencement. Armi-Lee says her transition from high school to university went smoothly thanks to her friends and her professors. “Having a network of friends around me gave me the comfort zone I needed,” she says. “My professors really cared about
me and my future. One professor who stands out is Dr. Tracey Roemmele. She never ceased to make me laugh and smile. She’s the very definition of chill; she really helped ease my stress during my first semester.” Although schoolwork occupies much of Armi-Lee’s time, she keeps a busy social schedule, hanging out with friends, hiking in the coulees and enjoying photography. And there’s her love for music (just search “Armi-Lee Amerila” on YouTube). Armi-Lee’s long-term plan is to become a teacher. Until then, she’s a student mentor at uLethbridge, helping other new students adjust to university life.
Life is complicated enough. Your education shouldn’t be.
