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.

Spring Open House is taking place on Saturday, May 25, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Our flexible event schedule means you can plan your visit ahead of time to ensure you have the campus experience you want.
