Third Year Double Degree Business and Financial Math
Hello! My name is Heather Gaffney and Iím a third year Double Degree Business and Financial Math student with co-op. Whether you are just applying to university now, canít decide which school is right for you, or finally clicked accept, I can promise you that you will feel at home at Laurier.
Iím from a small town called Waterdown and when I came on my first tour of Laurier I knew it was the perfect school for me with the small town feel. I didnít know what to expect before I came here but heard great things about Orientation Week and hoped I would meet some new people. Little did I know I would meet the greatest friends possible and become so involved at Laurier within my first 2 years.
My first year was unforgettable and I encourage all of you to get involved as soon as you can. I applied to the Business Learning Community which meant I lived on a floor with all business students. This was amazing because we all had the same classes and could share notes, help each other with homework, and having 19 study buddies was priceless! There are other living communities that may interest you as well.
Orientation week was amazing and left such a great impression on me that I became an Ice Breaker for my second year and canít wait to be one again in September. I also had the opportunity to be President of my residence house council which led to meeting many students across campus.
There is something at Laurier for everyone I can assure you, and if you would like to make a new club or intramural team go for it! Make the most of your first year and you will be calling Laurier your home in no time. If you havenít already done so, come for a campus tour and one of the outstanding Laurier Ambassadors will give you a tour of our home. Email me if you have any questions and hope to see you soon!
