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.

Choosing a university can be a tough decision for both parents and students. To help you through this process, we've created several online chat sessions that will allow you to connect with us, ask questions, and learn more about Laurier. Please note that all sessions include a question and answer period afterward.

To register for one of our upcoming webinars, simply click on the title of the webinar you wish to register for and fill out the one-minute registration form.

For more information about our webinars, contact us at or at 519.884.0710 x3385.


All Laurier @Home webinars include a 30-minute presentation followed by a question and answer period. However, questions are also welcome throughout the presentation.

We will continue to update the list of available webinars as we finalize plans through to the end of July. Please check back to learn more about other sessions that you may enjoy participating in.
