LAMPS was founded in the summer of 1969. LAMPS represents approximately 2,000 students studying all year round on campus and around the world via distance education. Our mission is to represent our membership both on and off campus, advocate on their behalf, and serve and link them to Laurentian University and the community at large. Our general membership is comprised of full-time Envision (distance education) as well as part-time on campus and Envision students. Our on campus operation or drop in center, offers information, advocacy and refuge for our members and the Laurentian community at large. Due to campus renovations, we are temporarily located in room JN-110 behind Starbucks.
