Join us at Laurier

Being 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.


Junior University Multidisciplinary Program (JUMP) offers three different options that vary in duration; full JUMP is a three-day residential experience, mini JUMP is a two-day residential experience and day JUMP jams all of the fun into one day. Each program is ideal for schools looking for a year-end trip that combines learning and fun.
