People at Laurier
Living in Waterloo College Hall residence in first year and participating in orientation week opened up new doors and opportunities for me to get involved and meet new friends. Being a member of the Student Food Bank, Hiring Committee and Ice Breaker for O-Week were just a few of the ways Iíve managed to make my Laurier experience special, but there are so many other directions you could take once you decide to become a Golden Hawk.
