Hi friends, and welcome to Laurier! My name is Sion Hartnett, and I am currently in my third year of the Criminology program. After my full four years of education, I hope to serve my home community as a police officer.
Like many of you out there, I was excited and nervous about what would come after Grade 12. I had visited many other schools on my journey to find the university for me. It was at the Laurier Fall Open House that I knew I wanted to be a Golden Hawk! Coming from the small town of Rockton, Laurier’s Brantford campus was a big change! I didn't know how well I would fit in or if I would like living away from the small two-hundred people town I called home. However, as the months passed, I found myself calling Laurier home, and my new friends my family.
Throughout the year, I also discovered how many opportunities there are for a student to get involved on campus! Many students, including myself, found excitement and reward out of the opportunities offered by the university. I found myself becoming drawn towards volunteering as a tour guide for our open houses. By doing this, I could express my love for Laurier and show prospective students what they could be a part of!
As a Laurier student, I continue to discover what it truly means to be a Golden Hawk. There is nowhere I would rather learn, live and grow than at Laurier. I hope to see you around campus, and remember to stay golden!
