Meet Our Students
Laura Sheridan, current WLUSA (Wilfrid Laurier University Students Union) President and CEO, graduated with a North American Studies minor in 2009. North American Studies has been a very integral part of her Laurier education: "The diversity of the classes offered, coupled with the expertise and dedication of faculty, creates a fantastic learning environment for students. The small class sizes encourage discussion and the interdisciplinary style of classes ensures that all material is relevant. I am often able to use my knowledge gained from North American Studies classes in my other courses at WLU." Laura is certain the content of the North American Studies courses have provided her with a well-rounded understanding of the issues facing Canada within North America which will no doubt prove valuable as she moves towards a career in business and marketing.
