"I would not trade my time spent at Laurier for anything in the world. I learned everything I set out to learn inside the classroom, but it was my time outside the classroom that I will never forget. During my four years there, I developed relationships both professional and personal that I know will last a lifetime, while learning more about myself than I ever thought possible."

– Daniel Grisebach (BSc '17)
