Jan Boomhouwer

Campus Ambassador,

5th Year Sociology and Women & Gender Studies

Bancroft, ON

Hi there!

My name is Jan and I am a 5th year Honours Sociology and Women & Gender Studies student completing my Community Engagement Option. I come from a small town, Bancroft, which is just south of Algonquin Park, but I have had the pleasure of calling Laurier's Waterloo campus my home for the past four years.

What I love most about Laurier is its small community feel andits numerous student leadership opportunities. Ever since move-in day, this campus has provided me with amazing friendships, learning opportunities and volunteer experiences. My first year experience included being able to be a Community Representative for my residence, C.H. Little House, volunteeringwithinthe Diversity & Equity Office, as well as participating in a volunteering abroad program where I was able to live and volunteerin Morocco the following summer.

I am so excited to be a campus ambassador for this upcoming year. I can't wait to share with you all that this campus has provided me in both academic and personal experience.
