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.

Experience the community spirit that makes Laurier so special. Join us on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on our Brantford campus.

Register in advance to receive important updates and reminders leading up to the event.
