Hey prospective Golden Hawks! I am so happy that you are considering Laurier as your school. I remember touring the campus for the first time and I know you will love it as much as I do! 

My name is Marissa and I am a Psychology student from Mississauga, Ontario. When I was looking for a university to call home, I decided to take a campus tour at Laurier. I immediately fell in love with the campus and the tight knit-community feel that came along with it. In my four years here at Laurier I have volunteered as a research assistant in the Psychology department, taken part in recreational dance classes, helped out on Laurier Day, and had the incredible opportunity to spend a semester abroad in Amsterdam and satisfy my love for travelling. In the 4 short months I was away I was able to visit ten European countries! I am currently writing my undergraduate thesis and sharing my passion for Laurier with people like you everyday as a student ambassador. There is definitely something for everyone at WLU. Along with challenging myself academically, Laurier has given me amazing opportunities and allowed me to meet wonderful people along the way! Getting involved was one of the best things I've ever done as I now have memories and friends that will last a lifetime. 

I wish you the best of luck in making these very difficult decisions! I know that you would be a great addition to the Golden Hawk family! I would love to show you around and I really hope to see you around campus in September :)
