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.

Waterloo – The university has issued the following statement regarding Laurier's continued work with community partners to address the street parties that occurred during Laurier’s Homecoming this past weekend:

Wilfrid Laurier University shares the concerns of Waterloo Regional Police Chief Bryan Larkin regarding student street parties.

We are committed to working with police, city and emergency partners, student leaders and other post-secondary institutions to shift the culture.

We are aware that such changes will take time and must be carefully managed to avoid unintended consequences. Laurier will continue to be actively engaged in discussing these issues with our community and student partners in the weeks and months ahead. The safety of students, community members, and police, city and emergency responders remains the highest priority for Wilfrid Laurier University.
