Second Year Business Administration
What’s up future Golden Hawks!? My name is Rohan Kapoor and I’m currently in my second year of the Bachelor of Business Administration program at Wilfrid Laurier.
The transition period from high school to university can be a very difficult time, but in choosing Laurier, you are guaranteed not to be disappointed! Because of the relatively small school size at Laurier, you definitely get a strong sense of community. You see familiar faces everyday, and in turn meet some awesome people, making waking up at 7:00 am even easier than it already is! A combination of the community feel, involvement opportunities, insanely strong school spirit, and highly praised academics were what helped me in deciding to come to Laurier.
Honestly, it felt like my first year went from start to finish faster than you can say “Golden Hawk.” In being part of the Business program, I had the opportunity to compete in the Pitch Competition and New Venture Competition. Just like Business, all programs have their own unique opportunities, as Laurier is highly diverse when it comes to program choices and customization.
At Laurier, there are also numerous opportunities to get involved. In my first year, I played on the Residence Athletic Council (RAC) basketball team, received a position on the Orientation Week volunteer staff as an Ice-Breaker, and also became a Student Ambassador, which I am especially excited for!
This is a huge step in your life, so make every moment count and make your university experience the best that it can be. Get involved, keep up with schoolwork, and socialize. You only get to go through university once, so don’t settle for “good” when you can make your experience phenomenal. Good luck!
