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.

Knowledge is meant to be shared and Laurier’s faculty and students are eager to share their research with the world. Learn about their discoveries, insights and artistic achievements by attending a Laurier event or listening to a research-focused podcast.
