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.

Third-Year Psychology
Whitby, ON

Hey future Golden Hawks! My name is Connor Jenkins and I am a third-year Psychology major with a minor in Criminology. Choosing Laurier not only as my university but also my second home has been an unforgettable and life changing experience.

After being an off-campus student in my first-year, I knew I wanted to continue to take part in the Laurier community and be involved. In grade 12, I never knew the depth and variety of clubs, academics, and associations I could be a part of.

After three years at Laurier, I have become involved in almost everything that the university has to offer. I have been lucky enough to be a part of the Emergency Response Team, Intramurals, Orientation Week, Hawks Helping Hawks, Winter Carnival, and Athletics and Reaction as a Lifeguard. This year, I am thrilled to be the Internal Trainer Executive on the Emergency Response Team, a Lifeguard Supervisor and a Campus Ambassador.

Not only have I fallen in love with the extracurricular opportunities, but I have also experienced a deepening of my knowledge and academic skill through outstanding courses offered by Laurier.

There isn’t a day where I wake up at Laurier not looking forward to getting involved. I never imagined I would be counting down the days until I can go back home, because home is where the hawk is.

Best of luck in making your decision, and I hope to see you all on campus. Class of 2022, Welcome to Laurier!
