"I'm just a regular gal,says Ami Richter. But how does a “regular gal” with a knack for design end up with one of her bags featured on Oprah Winfrey’s famed O List? The answer is surprisingly simple: a lot of hard work and a little luck along the way. Inspired by a Waterloo co-op work term, Ami’s flair for design combined with her entrepreneurial spirit led to the creation of Lug® – a line of smart, stylish travel solutions.

Alumni are encouraged to use public transportation however paid public parking options are available.
