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.
