What is the ULSU?

The University of Lethbridge Students' Union (ULSU) is an organization that is in place to help make your experience at the U of L as rewarding and enriching as possible. With nine permanent staff, the Zoo part-time staff members, Convenience store part-time staff, five Executive Council members, and sixteen General Assembly members, we work within the University community, but we are not part of the administration. We are students, just like you. We go to classes. We get stressed about midterms. We spend a lot of time studying.

What does the Executive Council do?

The Executive Council positions are annually elected and charged with addressing the needs of students at the U of L.

We represent you to the local, provincial, and federal governments, as well as University administration. We help provide services, like the Health and Dental Plan, ULSU Food Bank, U-Pass, scholarships, bursaries, awards, funding, clubs, fraternity's, sorority's, smart phone charging stations, food kiosks on 2nd level of the SUB, a convenience store, on-campus catering, and your campus bar and restaraunt - the Zoo. We also put on a variety of events; concerts in the Zoo, Fresh Fest, Last Class Bash, awareness weeks, and we host an academic speaker series, just to name a few. The Executive Council, General Assembly members, and staff of the ULSU all work hard to make the U of L a great place to get an education, but our ultimate purpose is to listen to you.
