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.


Tour+ Days offer you and your family the opportunity to experience Laurier’s Brantford campus through tours, mock lectures and professor drop-in office hours. Get a taste of campus life, along with the opportunity to speak to students and faculty about program details.

If you have questions about the event, contact our Communications and Welcome Centre Coordinator, Rachel Cavin, at rcavin@wlu.ca or by calling 519.756.8228 x5693.
