Meet our Ambassador- Nicole

Hi! My name is Nicole Dilliott and I am in my 3rd year of the Concurrent Education Primary/Junior program here at Laurier Brantford. I am from a small town and thatís why I instantly fell in love with Laurier Brantford - itís a community of people on campus who turn into your family. My time here at Laurier has been absolutely fantastic and I cannot wait to see what else this journey has to offer. I always encourage everyone to embrace their university experience by getting involved as much as possible (while keeping up with your academics) so you can get the most out of this awesome chapter in your life!

Before I even entered my first Laurier class, I attended LEAP in the summer and Orientation Week the first week of September. LEAP is a fantastic weekend where you can get a head start learning all about your campus and meeting new people. Orientation Week is the best week of your life (ask anyone that has ever gone to ours - itís absolutely phenomenal).

Residence is a great way to meet new people when you are coming to a brand new campus and environment. I lived in Grand River Hall 4 and at that time it was the Concurrent Education Learning and Living Community. I absolutely loved the people living on my floor. We instantly bonded and are still super close friends today. I was a Residence Athletic Council Community Representative which was a great opportunity for me to meet people from other residences and put on great activities to help the residences live a healthy life and meet new people.

During my time here at Laurier, I have spent a large amount of time with the Studentsí Union. I have been a general volunteer for committees such as Laurier Students for Literacy, EcoHawks, and Food Bank. I am currently the Food Bank Coordinator of the 2013/2014 year! Also, being an Icebreaker and Go-Team member for Laurier Brantfordís Orientation Week has been one of the most rewarding and memorable times here at university. By being involved with all of these committees, I have met so many people who I have become extremely close to these past couple of years.

I am also apart of NUSA (Nipissing University Student Ambassadors). Last year I was the secretary of this group and this year I am a volunteer. It is a great group to help plan activities for the Nipissing side of campus.

Lastly, I am a Student Ambassador with the Laurier Brantford Recruitment and Admissions Office where I get the privilege to talk to lovely incoming students like yourself! I am just as excited as you are (if not more excited) about the awesome journey that you are about to endeavor. Laurier Brantford is all about finding your fit, and you can find yours here too - just like we all have!
