Having safe and comfortable housing is so important but as a new student, finding housing can be confusing! Join the ISS and Residence teams as we walk you through all your housing options. You will learn about on-campus residence options and all the benefits residence offers. We'll also share suggestions to find safe, secure off-campus rentals and things to be aware of such as scams. We look forward to helping you navigate which option is best for you and answer any questions you may have about accommodations in Thunder Bay and Orillia.
The Lakehead Makes Leaders program, an initiative of Lakehead International, is made up of 5 online leadership modules that students can complete during their studies at Lakehead. Designed to address soft skills gaps often seen in post-secondary graduates, the program's 5 modules focus on building critical thinking skills, fostering self-reflection and emotional intelligence, and promoting innovation and disruption, all critical to success in the labour market
Each module is designed to build students’ soft skills and complement their academic learning. These modules are provided to students complimentary as part of Lakehead's commitment to producing the career-ready leaders of tomorrow. Successful completion of each module is recorded as a specific leadership completion certificate on the students’ co-curricular record. Lakehead University students who successfully complete all 5 modules are awarded an overall Lakehead Makes Leaders Completion Certificate. The Lakehead Makes Leaders Completion Certificate helps set students apart, and provides assurance to Ontario employers that our students are career-ready and positioned to be leaders in the workplace.
