Welcome, Lakeland 2012-2013!
Students, faculty and staff arrived in full force at the Lloydminster and Vermilion campuses this week. Enrolment numbers will be released later this month.
New programs this year include the heavy oil power engineering (HOPE) diploma program at the Lloydminster campus. The program is built from the heavy oil operation technology certificate program and expands on the power engineering skills and knowledge of heavy oil operations. This includes steam-assisted gravity drainage and industrial fire training.
Also new this year is the three-year gasfitter apprenticeship program which will have its first intake in March.
The new street rod technologies program, which will give students the skills and knowledge of how to rebuild and modify vehicles, is targeted to begin in the fall of 2013.
This year's incoming student body is the first group that will be part of Lakeland's centennial celebrations.
Orientation activities are scheduled for the Lloydminster and Vermilion campuses.
New barrier-free playground offers fun for children of all abilities
There should be no limitations on fun at a play park. That’s what children of all abilities will discover with the newly installed barrier-free outdoor playground located at the Lloydminster campus. The new playground is the result of a partnership between Lakeland College and the City of Lloydminster. The playground design has two parts – one area for children ages 1 to 5 years, and another for children ages five to 12.

Interior design student named NKBA outstanding student
- She’s done it again. In August, Courtney Federspiel, a 2012 graduate from Lakeland’s interior design technology program
, was announced as a recipient of a National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA) Outstanding Student Award.
The award is given to students from NKBA-accredited colleges and universities from throughout North America. Federspiel was one of 17 students who received the recognition and an additional $100 scholarship.
For Federspiel, the Outstanding Student Award is a great way to cap off a successful college career. Last spring, Courtney Federspiel earned a $1,000 scholarship and a trip to the National Kitchen & Bath Association design show in Chicago for placing third in the international organization's student bathroom design competition.
