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.


Stay connected with events and resources that are available to you through the Laurier community whether it be at our campuses and locations, or from the comfort of your own home. 

For a full listing of upcoming events, visit our events calendar.
