Ambassador Profile - Samantha
My Laurier Brantford Experience
Hi! My name is Samantha West, and I am entering my 4th year of the Concurrent Education Primary Junior Program here at the Laurier Brantford campus! In just three short years, I have already had such an incredible experience here on campus, and am looking forward to years of many more memories to come. I have had the privilege to be very involved during my time here with the Residence Life, the Students Union, Orientation Week, and on-campus jobs.
Residence is a great opportunity to meet people on campus as well as get involved in your first year here at Laurier Brantford. In my first year, I lived in the Wilkes House community, and had a great experience in residence. I was able to bond with people in both my apartment as well as community through various events that Residence Life Council puts together for students, as well as our Don was amazing at planning community events for us! If residence is something you are interested in, I highly encourage incoming students to get involved in their residence communities.
The Students Union (WLUSU) has many committees and volunteer positions that I encourage both current and incoming students to be involved in. I have been a volunteer for Laurier Students for Literacy as well as Recruitment and Promotions. Also, I am the incoming Laurier Brantford Research Outreach Coordinator for the 2013-2014 school year! As well, being an Icebreaker for Laurier Brantford's Orientation Week is definitely the best experience on campus I have had the privilege to be a part of. I have been able to meet and help first year students transition into their new university life!
This year, I am both an incoming Student Ambassador, as well as the Summer Tour Coordinator here at Laurier Brantford. I've been able to spend my summer sharing my love for Laurier Brantford to perspective students and incoming First Year students. There are also many other on-campus jobs that students have the opportunity to apply for. There are many incredible ways to get involved on campus here at Laurier! I encourage all incoming students to embrace student life and turn Laurier Brantford into your home away from home, just like I have!"
