Leth­bridge Col­lege makes it a spe­cial day for stu­dents

Lethbridge Herald - - HOMETOWN NEWS - Tim Kali­nowski LETH­BRIDGE HER­ALD

Leth­bridge Col­lege held a two-hour bar­be­cue and swag give­away for its stu­dents on Thurs­day to help cel­e­brate Na­tional Stu­dent Day.

“We are cel­e­brat­ing stu­dents and their suc­cess, and what they do on the side be­sides their school­ing,” ex­plained Leth­bridge Col­lege man­ager of book­store ser­vices Emily Camp­bell, who helped or­ga­nize the day. “So the vol­un­teer­ing, aca­demics, the sports side — all of it. To cel­e­brate to­day they have free burg­ers, T-shirts, cot­ton candy, pop­corn, pic­tures and ev­ery­thing. It helps take a lit­tle bit of the pres­sure off this time of year.”

And that’s an­other good rea­son to hold a spe­cial event like this on a cool, some­what gloomy day in Oc­to­ber, said Camp­bell.

“This is usu­ally one of the hard times of year when home­sick­ness sets in, and mid-terms are right on them. So we like to have one day where they can party, and ev­ery­thing is free for them. Stu­dents need to feel that we love them, and that we do want them to be suc­cess­ful in their aca­demic ca­reers.”
