Beginners guide to Downtown: Welcoming back students!

Posted on : Thursday, August 26, 2021


September is when many students move to the city preparing to begin or continue their post-secondary education. This year is more significant as all students were not able to come down to Lethbridge and visit the campuses with their own eyes due to Covid-19. The BRZ has been working with the City of Lethbridge, Chamber of Commerce, Tourism Lethbridge, Lethbridge College and University of Lethbridge to welcome back students to the city with some fun activities. One of the things the BRZ has been working on is creating a map of the downtown area. This map will specifically highlight what business in the area will have a student discount, these maps will be handed out at new student orientation. It will be a great way for students to explore and see the many wonderful businesses that are in downtown. Also, for the students the University and College will be giving away some potential prizes that were donated from some of the awesome businesses, more details on that will be released later by the University and College. This is a very exciting time for students to be able to attend school in person and be able to explore the city, make sure to take advantage of the many awesome student deals that downtown has to offer!
