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.

Three Facts About Me:

  • 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!
