Waterloo, ON


HELLO and welcome to Wilfrid Laurier University! My nameís Pareesa and Iím a third year Honours Bachelor of Business Administration student with the Co-op option. I canít wait for you to learn more and fall in love with Laurier just like I did.

Getting involved in the many opportunities Laurier offers has been one the best decisions Iíve made here. It was a great way to meet people I had a lot in common with while learning so much from fellow students and faculty members. With over 150 school clubs, Laurierís got something for everyone! I also discovered the amazing resources on campus, like the career centre, which provided me with so much guidance in finding my first full-time summer job in my first year!

Living off campus, I found LOCUS offered an experience as great as residence! I had a supportive and helpful Off-Campus Advisor and an amazing LOCUS community. Being part of House Council was also a lot of fun since we got to plan huge events that not only LOCUS, but many other residences participated in!

I have loved being a student under the School of Business and Economics. We apply what we learn in class, in labs, competitions and presentations, which has been an amazing learning experience. In first year my ďNew VentureĒ group made it all the way to the semi-finals of the competition, where we presented our idea to graduates currently working for huge corporations. It was so great getting their feedback which we can use in our future endeavours!

The environment at Laurier is unlike any other. I love that I run into my friends around campus and that I can guarantee that at every school event Iíll see at least one person I know. Thereís so much to love about Laurier; our amazing sense of community, school spirit and passion for school involvement are some of my favourites! Iím so happy to call Laurier home, and I hope you will too!
