Join us at Laurier

Becoming 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.

Incoming Student Support Programs

Your first year at university is a time of tremendous change and growth. You’ll be meeting new people and introduced to new ideas. And you’ll be studying and learning in ways completely different from what you’ve already experienced.

It’s an exciting time, but it can also be overwhelming. We offer programs that will help you prepare for university.

Laurier 101

Laurier 101 is a collection of programs specifically tailored for incoming students that support you from the time you accept your offer until the first week of classes and beyond. All undergraduate students can participate in Laurier 101 programming, including transfer, mature learners, and international students. 

Laurier 101 will be your guide to all things Laurier as you prepare for a successful first year. Gain insights on how to plan and register for courses, meet fellow Golden Hawks, purchase your textbooks, budget and pay for tuition, prepare for academic life, access campus supports, learn how to join campus clubs and activities, and get tips from senior students.

Orientation Week

Orientation Week (O-Week) activities will guide you through your first days as a Laurier student. The week is full of activities to introduce you to campus and to your fellow first-year students.

Whether you're living on campus or off campus, transferring from another institution, coming from another country or coming back as a mature student, there is something for everyone at orientation week!

Accessible Learning Support

Transition Connections: Orientation to Accessible Learning is designed to introduce students with documented disabilities to support services offered at Laurier.

Math Preparation

TriAGe helps prepare students who plan to enrol in an entry-level university calculus course by reinforcing fundamental skills in trigonometry, algebra and geometry.
