  • Clubs & Organizations - a listing of clubs and organizations such as schools with email address, website, phone and description.

  • Links is a series of quick links to commonly used places on the website. This includes the portals to My Lakeland and D2L as well as My Student Plan, the Equine Centre calendar and the library.
Timetable
This calendar has what is known as the academic schedule. This includes holidays, days the college is closed, convocation dates and deadlines for dropping and adding classes.timetable

You may add your own events to this calendar. You may also add an event from the events feed to the calendar.

If you like, you can also add courses to this calendar. Start are courses, find your course, and then add the times.
Campus Wall & Channels
One of the most interactive parts of the mobile app is the Wall. This is your community.
student cog
There's a main student feed, and you can also choose to follow and post in some specific channels. Those channels are:
  • Buy & Sell
  • Lost + Foundvisible channels
  • Housing
  • News
  • Ride Sharing
  • Vermilion Campus
  • Lloydminster Campus

You can turn these channels off and on, and also turn the notifications from these channels off and on [see graphic at right].

Start at the top right with the gear symbol, also known as settings button [see graphic above right], and then turn channels off and on.

Why use the channels?
If you a buying or selling something, or lost or found something, it's a lot easier to locate a specific post if it's on a designated channel. Pick that channel and that's the only posts you'll see. If you're looking for a specific textbook, for example, then all you will see are posts related to buying and selling. So, you save time not having to scroll through all posts on the entire student feed.

Once you set your visible channels they will appear above the wall feed.

student wall Notifications You may also choose to turn the notifications on or off for none, one, selected or all of these channels. You make the choice. Use the setting button to go to notifications.

Inbox
The inbox allows you to send and receive messages to other people who use the app.
Profile
Much like social media such as Facebook, the mobile app allows you to create a profile. Your profile photo is what people see when you comment on the wall or send messages.
rowdy profile
Your profile also shows places and groups you are using on the app.
Events
Each event has a photo, an event title, date and time and a the start of event details.

When you click on the event there is more information including the location with map detail.

Links
These links are designed to save you time.
awards
They will be even better once the whole website is responsive later in Fall 2016.
Orientation Stream
The orientation stream tab is only available before orientation/registration days. It has a lot of listings - by year and by program - for the September intake. We're working on providing this same type of information for apprenticeship and ETC intakes during other times in the academic year.

– Ali Mullin

Agribusiness, class of 2014, former Miss Rodeo Canada.

I feel the professors at Lakeland actually prepared me for the profession. It’s impossible to be just a number here when there are 12 students in all of your classes. When the school advertised small class sizes, they actually meant it.

– Alyssa Wells

University Transfer, Class of 2017.

What Alumni Say
