Join us at Laurier

Being 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.

Our Waterloo campus Tour+ Day is Saturday, May 27, 2017 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

You can enjoy any portion of the events offered during Tour+. You’ll get a great taste of our vibrant campus life while learning about residence, student support services, financial aid opportunities, your program of interest and what it’s like to be a Laurier Golden Hawk. You may just meet your future classmates too!

Event Flyer

When you arrive for Tour+, you will be given a flyer that contains your schedule, a campus map which includes places to eat on campus and more information about the event. Until then, you can view all this information, including info on how to register and where to park, below.
