Campus Ambassador,

3rd Year Business Administration

Cambridge, ON

Hey future Golden Hawks! My name is Becca and I am in my third year of the Bachelor of Business Administration program with the Co-op option, and minoring in Psychology. This is my first year as a campus ambassador, and I am so excited to share with you all of my wonderful experiences I have had at Laurier!

Three years ago I was in your shoes talking to guidance counselors about programs, applying to schools, visiting campuses, and finally trying to decide where I wanted to spend my next 4 years. I chose Laurier because it exceeded my expectations in the three areas I was looking for in a university: fantastic academics, amazing extracurricular activities, and an infectious school spirit! Although you probably feel as nervous as I did, remember that this is a very exciting time for you!

During my time at Laurier I have had so many opportunities to get involved, meet new people, and make this school my home. In my first year I lived on the Business and Economics Learning Community, which was a great way to expand my knowledge of the business world outside of my time in lectures! I was a part of several campus clubs, including my residence House Council (which is like your high school student council) where I was able to plan fun events for students. Wherever you decide to go, be sure to get involved!

I am so happy that you are considering choosing Laurier! Be sure to come for a campus tour to see all of wonderful things this school has to offer. My one piece of advice would be to take your time, and choose the school that feels like home. Laurier was that place for me, and I hope it is for you too!
