The importance of a Laurier education
As Laurier alumni, you know the difference that a university education can make in the life of an individual. Increasingly, the importance of a post-secondary education in ensuring future success has never been greater. Meanwhile, government funding to support post-secondary education continues to shrink, while the number of students seeking affordable, quality higher education opportunities grows exponentially.
The harsh reality facing today’s Laurier students
Their reality is that:
- Today, tuition fees only cover half of the costs of a Laurier education.
- Today, half of all Laurier students require financial aid – that’s more than 7,000 students every year.
- Today, Laurier has seen a 110% increase in the number of students applying for financial aid.
Your gift will help Laurier change lives
Gifts from alumni help to bridge this ever-expanding gap. Philanthropic support from alumni, like you, ensures that deserving students can attend Laurier where they will be encouraged and empowered to thrive in our increasingly complex world, while leading lives of leadership and purpose.
We hope you enjoyed your Laurier experience and that you can see how your time at Laurier helped make you who you are today. Furthermore, we want you to know that by supporting the transformative power of a Laurier education, your generosity can change lives – equipping Laurier students with the skills, knowledge and courage to reach their full potential, realize their dreams and change the world.
