Rugged and strong, Timbers can be found most often venturing through the Canadian Shield. Working tirelessly with their community in the deep recesses of the wilderness, Timbers never back down from a challenge no matter the risk or reward. Valuing strength, bravery and honour above all else, the Timbers work hard and play hard too.
Careful not to get lost amongst the trees, these adventurers can be found in a sea of green wearing red plaid and denim, often with their favourite suspenders and a toque. Often towering over their competitors, Timbers have sworn never to do harm unto another person. Are you ready to step into the Wild of #LAURIEROWEEK17 as a Red Timber?
WHY AM I A RED TIMBER?
All first year students, on both campuses, and those living on and off campus, are placed on one of four colour teams. Each team is represented by a colour and a character – we encourage you to embrace it! As part of Orientation Week, you’ll participate in team activities and challenges; it also helps to identify your student volunteer leaders, also known as “Icebreakers.” Whenever you have a question or are heading somewhere, make sure to check in with your Icebreakers.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I’M A RED TIMBER?
Check out here if you’re on the Waterloo campus and here if you’re on the Brantford campus to see which residence floors are assigned to be a Red Timber. This will help you when identifying your Icebreakers and fellow team members. This information will also be provided when you come to pick up your O-Week kits on Move-In Day.
