Welcome To Laurier, from Your President


Student life is an integral part of being a Golden Hawk and there are countless opportunities for you to get involved in what you want to pursue.

Orientation Week is an exciting part of your Laurier journey. It is an opportunity for you to meet new people, get to know the campus, engage with student life and foster long-lasting relationships. Throughout the week, there will be numerous events, concerts and programs for you to partake in.

I recall being nervous in my first year, as it was my first time living away from home. Once I came to Laurier, I was surrounded by enthusiastic volunteers who supported and encouraged me to try new things. I started with cheer-off, signing up to be a volunteer and creating new friendships. Reflecting back, those initial moments helped me through my Laurier journey and opened up countless other opportunities.

The Students’ Union exists to help you pursue your passions and interests. We are here as a resource to help you succeed. So, step out of your comfort zone, make new friends, try new activities and get involved! One opportunity can lead to another and take your farther than you can imagine.

I can’t wait to meet you in September. Until then, follow me on Twitter @StudentsUPres and look for me on the @students_union Snapchat.

It’s great to be a Laurier Golden Hawk!
