People at Laurier

Sharon Shavel, Faculty of Social Work Sharon Shavel was born to Israeli immigrant parents who moved to the Toronto area a couple of years before she was born. Sharon came to the Waterloo region to obtain her undergrad degree.ďDuring my last year of undergrad I learned more about the MSW program at WLU from the numerous information sessions and all the information provided online and began the application process. I was attracted to coming back to the KW area I had fallen in love with. The program is really convenient considering its many course possibilities, the diverse research interests among the professors, and the practicum possibilities are endless.Ē The well-located downtown Kitchener campus provides students with many places to go between and after classes. Its proximity to city hall offers a number of opportunities for students in the community based stream, and there are also many housing prospects close to campus or near a bus stop.
