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.

Deans of Students Leanne Holland Brown and Adam Lawrence took to Twitter earlier this month to chat with students, staff and faculty about everything from student wellness to daycare to how the two campuses differ. The true colour of “the dress” even came up.

Lawrence, dean of students at Laurier’s Brantford campus, took questions March 5 via the #AskDeanAdam hashtag, and directly to his account, @deanadam_wlu. To see the conversations, visit

“What I love most about my job is getting to engage with Laurier students – including incoming students – and the community,” said Lawrence. “This is just one more way that I get to do that. If I can also answer some burning questions, all the better.”

Holland Brown, dean of students at Laurier’s Waterloo campus, answered questions March 10. Questions were submitted using the hashtag #AskDeanLeanne, or directly to her Twitter account, @deanleanne. To see the conversations, visit

“I always look forward to connecting with students in a new way, and talking about issues that are important to them,” said Holland Brown. “The best part of my job is meeting our students, hearing about their Laurier experience and understanding what we can do better to support student success.”

This is the third #AskDean event Lawrence and Holland Brown have hosted. The goal is to have one event per campus, per semester.
