Hey Golden Hawks! My name is Matt Honsberger and I am currently loving my University life in my fifth year of the Music program here at Laurier. I have had four amazing years here and although I am excited for my last semester, I definitely do not want to leave!

My biggest piece of advice for all of you as you are entering these very important four years of your life is to make sure that you are doing what you need to do to make these four years enjoyable and impactful for yourself and everyone around you. If you are staying in residence, get involved with your house council and your floor, join one of our 160 (and counting!) campus clubs, or get involved with a job on campus. Through my years here, I have been a part of a bunch of different things here at Laurier including Residence Life, working part-time at Wilfs, doing research with some of my professors and volunteering around campus. I have to tell you that even though I had a great experience with the in-class side of university, these extra-curriculars are where I really learned about myself and built the relationships that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

There are so many great things about Laurier that I want to tell you about! The campus, facilities, residences, and Wilf’s are all incredible. From the University administration and professors, to your fellow students, the people at Laurier never fail to amaze me with their unwavering love for the school and each other.

I absolutely cannot wait for you to get to come and check out our campus and get to see why everyone who comes to Laurier falls in love with it! See you soon friends!
