Exceptional undergraduate experience

Leddy adds rooms dedicated to student wellness

Students enjoy the new wellness room at Leddy Library
The Leddy Library surprised students this month with three new spaces designed to enhance their wellness.

These spaces have been designated as “wellness rooms”: two in the main building on the second and third floors, and one in the west building on the third floor. Each room is equipped with dimmable lighting and cozy furniture to help students relax.

While the renovations have just wrapped up, it didn’t take long for students to find them.

Researchers had extra support at the Academic Data Centre in the Winter 2022 semester thanks to mathematics and statistics students. Nine students enrolled in the statistical consulting courses had the opportunity to assist in the centre to hone their skills and gain valuable hands-on experience.

The venture is part of a growing collaboration between the centre and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics that allows students at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate levels to apply their course learning to real scientific statistical analysis projects.
