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.

Thank a Laurier donor because their generosity helps make the Laurier we love possible. That was the message relayed this week as hundreds of tags were posted across Laurier’s Waterloo and Brantford campuses.

These tags were placed around Laurier to showcase and recognize the many areas that are enhanced or expanded by philanthropic investments. While not all of the items provided through donations are tagged, every tag aims to highlight the many ways in which donations positively impact the university and the Laurier student experience.

Spearheaded by Laurier’s Student Alumni Association (SAA) volunteers, this celebration of philanthropy aims to build awareness within the Laurier community about the exceptional community of donors that backs every Laurier student.

“Tag Day gives Laurier students a chance to say thanks,” says Reina Stewart, president of Laurier’s Waterloo campus SAA. “Thank you, to every alumnus, staff, faculty, student, parent or friend who donates to Laurier. Thank you for investing in my potential and my future. Your support ensures Laurier students make it to graduation day equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to thrive.”

At interactive events hosted by Laurier SAA in Waterloo and Brantford, students were encouraged to “say thanks” to the remarkable community of donors who make the Laurier they love possible.

“Thanks to the thousands of Laurier donors who donate millions of dollars every year, my Laurier experience is second to none,” says Rachael Makanju, president of Laurier’s Brantford campus SAA. “I’m honoured to have had the chance to share with other Golden Hawks the incredible difference that all Laurier donors are making to our Laurier days.”
