Stay Golden means a lot of things to me. It represents my family and friends that I’ve made at the university, it represents all the compassion every Golden Hawk has shown me and others on campus, and it means that, in a way, we’re all connected by this one small phrase.”


Quote Image

“To me, Stay Golden represents the positive community here at Laurier. We are all here to help one another be successful and be the best version of ourselves that we can be!”

“For me being a Golden Hawk means always being there for my friends and trying to better my community.”

“Although it is my first year, at the last open house, the phrase Stay Golden was said a lot and it was a phrase that helped me make my university choice. The colour gold associates with love, compassion, courage and wisdom. I am very excited to be moving to Brantford to begin a new life away from home, and I’m proud to have the phrase Stay Golden with me.”

“To me, Stay Golden means that we, as a student body and a community, can weather any storm while being true to ourselves and supporting each other along the way. It means embodying strong values and morals and always being there for one another.”
