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.

Choosing a university can be a tough decision for both parents and students. To help you through this process, we've created online chat sessions that will allow you to connect with us, ask questions and learn more about Laurier.

Webinars provide an opportunity for you to hear from faculty, chat with current students and learn more about student support services. All webinars include a 30-minute presentation followed by a question and answer period. Questions are also welcome throughout the presentation and can be submitted using the online chat feature.

Upcoming Webinars 

Live webinar sessions will resume in fall 2020. As sessions are confirmed, the date, time and registration link will be listed. In the meantime, check out our previous webinar recordings for resources available to you at this time.
