Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.


It’s hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person. No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come, you’ll immediately feel the community spirit that makes Laurier special.

Visit us in person by booking a campus tour, or during one of our open houses or campus event days. If you can’t visit us in person, you can experience our campuses with a virtual campus tour.

Applicant Socials

All applicants are invited to attend our upcoming applicant social events. We hope you will join us on April 24 in Mississauga, Ontario or on May 3 in London, Ontario, to network with Laurier staff, faculty, current students and alumni. Our socials are a great opportunity to socialize with and learn about Laurier from individuals who were in your shoes not too long ago. You could also meet some of your potential future classmates!

You can meet and talk with Laurier staff, students and faculty from:

  • Recruitment and Admissions
  • Residence
  • Accessible Learning
  • Financial Aid
  • Lazaridis School of Business and Economics
  • Faculties of Arts, Science and Music (Waterloo campus)
  • Faculties of Human and Social Sciences, Liberal Arts and Social Work (Brantford campus)

While registration is not mandatory, we recommend that you RSVP for the social in advance so that we can send you more information in advance of the events.
