Abner Pennings

Campus Ambassador,

4th Year Business Administration

Mount Forest, ON


My name is Abner Pennings and I am going into my 3rd year of Business Administration with the Co-op option. This is my first year as an ambassador and I could not be more excited to represent Laurier. This school has done a lot for me and I am happy to share my stories and experiences to new golden hawk recruits!

When I first came to Laurier I was shy, nervous and overwhelmed. I came from a small town and knew nobody, but this schoolís ability to welcome everyone into its tight community of amazing people was incredible and I have never regretted my decision to come here.

Iíve been part of so many things here, from being an Icebreaker for Orientation Week to representing the Laurier Business School in the national JDCC competition as a Social Delegate. The Co-op program has opened doors to hundreds of paid work term opportunities that have allowed me to learn so much about what I really want to do after I graduate.

I am now a Head Icebreaker for the 2014-2015 Orientation Week and am extremely excited to welcome everyone to this school. The amount of memories and knowledge I have gained as a golden hawk are astronomical and have easily been the best years of my life so far.

I am so happy you considered Laurier as a post-secondary institution and I could not encourage you- more to come get a tour from one of our great ambassadors!
