Third-Year Bachelor of Business Administration
Hi there! My name is Xueying Xu, and I am from Shanghai, China. I am going to my third year this September, in the Business Administration program. I am so excited and thrilled to have the opportunity of being an International Ambassador and sharing my story with you.
I took a year off to study English after I graduated from high school in China and came to Canada two years ago by myself. I was nervous but excited about everything surrounding me. In the first few weeks, I met lots of international and local friends thanks to both International Orientation Week (IOW) and Student Orientation Week (O-Week). People here are very friendly and nice. During the IOW, international mentors took me to Wal-Mart to get groceries. They also went to the bank with me and helped me deal with bank account issues. One mentor became a really close friend of mine. It was around this time that I began to feel so glad that I chose Laurier, and proud of being a Laurier Golden Hawk! Until today, I am still really thankful for the previous international ambassador who called my home and helped me learn more about this awesome beloved university.
There are many things I love about Laurier, however, close community definitely can be counted as number one. It binds Laurier students together and makes us feel closer. Laurier not only has awesome academic reputation, but it also provides many diverse opportunities for students to experience, create and enjoy.
If you have any questions, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be more than happy to answer them. Wish you all the best of choosing university.
Please stay awesome and hope to see you soon at Laurier.
