Look into Laurier

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.


It’s hard to explain what it means to be a Golden Hawk without meeting us in person. No matter which of our campuses you tour, once you come, you’ll immediately feel the community spirit that makes Laurier special.

Ontario Universities' Fair

Attend the only official event with all 21 Ontario universities together in one place!

  • Date: Sept. 23 to 25, 2016
  • Cost: Free admission
  • Location: Metro Toronto Convention Centre

The Ontario Universities Fair (OUF) is the largest education fair in North America. Last year, more than 132,000 students, parents and educators attended the event. Each Ontario university hosts an exhibition booth and presents information sessions at this three-day event. Attendees can speak one-on-one with faculty and representatives from all the universities, much as they would on a university tour or at an Open House.
