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.

Join Shadi Varkiani, a third-year Laurier Economics student, as she tours the construction site of the new home of the School of Business and Economics and Department of Mathematics and learn about a unique opportunity to put your name on the GIE by watching our “We Saved You A Seat” video.

The “We Saved You A Seat” video is part of an exciting fundraising initiative designed to celebrate our donors with a unique recognition opportunity within the GIE, and is one element of our campaign to “Build Canada’s Best Business School.”

The overall goal of the campaign is to fundraise $55 million. Donations will support the GIE building, student scholarships, international initiatives, professorships and chairs, entrepreneurship, the Startup Fund, the Department of Mathematics and the McGrath Centre for Excellence in Business Education.

This is the first phase of a comprehensive fundraising initiative for the entire university. Over the summer, representatives from Development and Alumni Relations worked with departments across the university to determine the fundraising priorities that will drive the second pan-university phase of the campaign. The first phase of the campaign has already received significant support from individuals, corporations and foundations.

As the construction of this game-changing building continues, Laurier has saved its donors a front-row seat. Watch the video or visit to learn about this unique opportunity to make a permanent mark at Laurier while supporting an exciting new future for Laurier students.
