Janice Chiu

Campus Ambassador Coordinator,

4th Year Business Administration

Toronto, ON

Hereís a big golden hawk welcome to Wilfrid Laurier University! My name is Janice and I am a fourth year Business Administration (BBA) Student, specializing in Marketing with a French minor. I am from the Lawrence Park area in Toronto and now I am proud to call Laurier-Waterloo my home away from home.

First off, congratulations! What an excellent choice you are making in considering Laurier. By taking the first step and signing up for a campus tour, you are about to embark on a wonderful adventure. After taking my campus tour the summer before attending this institution, I was set and knew that this amazing school would be my home for four fun-filled years.

Itís crazy to believe that my time at Laurier is coming to an end as just yesterday, I was still deciding on where to go. However, the spirited and close-knit community instantly made it feel like home. Over my time at Laurier, I have been exposed to countless opportunities and built lifelong friendships. None of which would have been possible if I did not participate in extra-curriculars. So let me tell you, GET INVOLVED Ė you will hear everyone tell you to do so too and I can promise you that it will open doors to countless opportunities. Throughout my three years, I have been actively involved with Women In Leadership Laurier (WILL), a club under Laurierís School of Business and Economics Studentsí Society (SBESS). Last year, I was elected the WILL Co-President and it was remarkable to see the organization thrive and achieve success.

Furthermore, this is my second year as a Campus Ambassador and I am extremely excited to be taking on the role of Ambassador Coordinator for the 2014-2015 year. However before I go, let me leave you with one last piece of advice. Find a school that you can picture yourself at as you will be spending your next four years there. You want to find a place that you are comfortable with. It will be your time to discover yourself, meet great people and most importantly, try new experiences. Laurier has given me a strong balance, shaping me into a well-rounded individual. I hope that you will be able to do the same and discover how amazing Laurier is for yourself. I hope to see you around campus and stay golden my friends!
