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.

Our Students

Laurier students and graduates are the best. The Career Development Centre is proud to be a partner in making successful connections between employers and our community.

Laurier has been known for academic excellence for over a century – but in-class learning is only part of the equation. Putting knowledge to work in the real world through experiential learning is a hallmark of the Laurier experience, and it is something employers value in our graduates.

Through comprehensive programming starting in first year, our goal is to equip students and graduates with a combination of knowledge, skills and experience that will make an immediate and positive impact on your organization. In fact, Laurier has developed a competency framework to help students understand and articulate the knowledge, skills and attributes they have developed through their program and experiences.

  • Academic programs: Laurier offers majors, minors and options in more than 100 programs of study.
  • Engaged and well-rounded students: Laurier students are recognized for their extensive involvement in volunteer and leadership positions on campus and in the external community. The Laurier Experience Record is a comprehensive account of a student's engagement.
  • Student demographics: View our Registrar’s Report for detailed information on our 20,000+ students by program of study, geographic distribution and biographical parameters.
