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 number one thing on my bucket list is to visit each continent at least once, so far I’ve checked of North America and Europe!

Why Did You Choose Laurier?

I chose Laurier’s Brantford campus because of its size, I love how I’m not just a number in the crowd. Laurier Brantford immediately felt like home to me, the students, staff and professors are so welcoming. The program was also a big draw, having an entry level program with two placements was a big plus!
