Wilfrid Laurier University

There's a place for you here.

“Professors genuinely cared about my education and success — they constantly challenged me and gave me opportunities to work in labs and take on leadership roles.”

Laura Inthof
Archaeology and Heritage Studies '18

“My time at Laurier was the most challenging and rewarding experience of my life. I could not have chosen a better school.”

Chandler Barardi
Digital Media and Journalism ’18

“The soft skills I was able to learn through the small classroom environments, even in just first year, put me at an incredible advantage. I have been trained to think on my feet, be motivated, be knowledgeable in what I do, and, most importantly, be professional.”

Merna Riad
Business Administration

“Having the chance to experience in real life what I was learning in the classroom, for three different courses, was one of the highlights of my Laurier experience.”

Sarah Martiniello
Criminology and Psychology ’17

“Wherever you may go, you will get a great education, but your university experience is really what you make of it. There are so many amazing opportunities for students to get involved at Laurier.”

Billy Tran
Health Studies
