Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


The power of podcasting lies in its ability to inspire storytellers and audiences alike. With the introduction of a new professional podcasting studio on Laurier’s Brantford campus, members of the Laurier community will have the opportunity to create and captivate their audiences through engaging audio content.

Made possible through a $15,000 grant from the Samuel W. Stedman Foundation and a $3,000 grant from the City of Brantford Grants Program in 2019, the podcasting studio will be open to creators, businesses, non-profit organizations and educational institutions looking to harness the impact and popularity of podcasting. Laurier’s students, staff and instructors will be able to use the studio as a teaching and learning tool to bring creative stories to life and help mobilize knowledge in a dynamic, digital way.
