The Last Lecture

The ULSU will be continuing the tradition of hosting the Last Lecture Series. This is an opportunity for University of Lethbridge Professors to tell you about life lessons that cannot be learned in a classroom. This year’s speakers are Dr. Jogn von Heyking, Faculty of Arts and Science – Political Science; Dr. Hillary Rodrigues, Faculty of Arts and Science – Religious Studies. These distinguished members of the University of Lethbridge Faculty will deliver a hypothetical “Last Lecture” about life, love, success, and basic knowledge they feel everyone should know. 

The Last Lecture is a book co-authored by Randy Pausch, about everything he wanted his children to know after he was diagnosed with a terminal illness. Pausch delivered his last lecture entitled “Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams,” as part of a lecture series where academics are challenged to think about what really matters to them and give a “Last Lecture”. 

The Last Lecture is Wednesday April 9th at 7:00 pm in the University Theatre, admission is free and everyone is welcome.

Its tax season again!

Filing taxes can be a very confusing and intimidating process. For numerous students, this may be the first time that they will have ever been required to do so. Rather than doing your taxes yourself this year, you can get them done for free on campus by trained volunteers.

Trained Faculty of Management students (volunteering with the Canada Revenue Agency) will be offering a free ‘drop-in’ tax service to students and others who qualify for the program.

This is a unique program that will allow students to gain practical experience doing taxes while at the same time helping their fellow students. All of the volunteers are trained by CRA and this program is completely free. Taxes filed will be immediately e-filed. 

Please note that this program is only for a simple income tax return. Those that have earnings over $35,000, business returns, capital gains or foreign income will not be eligible for this program. Community members, if they meet the previous requirements, are also eligible for the program.

At your time of visit, please have ready your personal identification, Notice of Assessment, all employment income slips (T4’s), any RRSP contributions, tuition slips (T2202A) and any other tax information that you may have received over the year.

Location:              M2044 (Financial Trading Room in Markin Hall)

Dates:                   March 21st, 28th, April 4th, April 11th

Time:                    8:00am – 4:00pm
