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.

Year after year, Laurier proves to be a premier destination for students looking for excellent academics, innovative programs and an outstanding student experience.

It's hard to know what it's like to be a Laurier Golden Hawk when you haven't experienced it for yourself, so we talked to some international students so they could share their experiences with you.


Thomas Rodriguez, Colombia

fourth-year student, Economics and Global Studies

“Laurier’s warm community has been great in empowering me to be involved in several clubs and to participate in volunteering activities while succeeding academically as an international student and making a worthwhile group of friends.”


Rosa Cruz, Spain

fourth-year student, Business Administration

“Ever since I set foot on campus I fell in love with the welcoming feeling that the students and alumni offered. Once I started my first year, all of my expectations were realized and I am positive that choosing Laurier was the best decision I’ve ever made for my professional and personal lifepath.”


Andrea Kay Matthews, Malaysia

second-year student, Business Administration

“Laurier was the most welcoming university. Thanks to a few amazing recruiters, I was able to meet upper-year Laurier business students and a business professor in Malaysia to gauge a better understanding of the program. I was also given a welcome kit, a bonus to this truly remarkable experience.”


Eva Raiyani, India

second-year student, Psychology

“Laurier offers a perfect small-campus feel and all parts of Laurier are well connected. I'm glad to be in a space that possesses a strong sense of community, values diversity and offers a friendly environment to everyone. I can now promise that Laurier makes every Golden Hawk feel at home!”


Son Le, Vietnam

third-year student, Game Design and Development

“One of the most amazing things about Laurier is the wide variety of programs offered. Laurier's Game Design and Development program is quite different from other institutions because it focuses on the principles and mechanics of games. This attracted me to enrol.”


Denise Fung, Hong Kong

fourth-year student, Music

“I chose Laurier because of its small, tight-knit community and the massive amount of opportunities students have to get involved on campus. Professors are very approachable in this friendly environment and all of the Laurier services allow me to succeed in my courses.”
