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.

We are excited to share with you the Golden Hawk tradition of academic excellence, real-world experience and a commitment to making a difference in your community locally, nationally and internationally. Whether you’re thinking of attending our Waterloo or our Brantford campus, you will be part of a spirited, tight-knit, supportive community that looks to provide you with a home away from home. Our desire for getting involved is infectious, and you will walk away with the skills and experience necessary to land your dream job when you cross the stage at convocation.
