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.

My Favourite Quote:

“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” – Andrew Carnegie

Three Facts about Me:

  • I have travelled as far north in Canada as Moosonee and had the opportunity to see the sites of the original Hudson Bay trading post which inspired the Hudson Bay Company. I have seen most of Northern Ontario on multiple occasions!
  • I was a Highland Dancer for 13 years, starting when I was 3 years old. I haven’t missed the Georgetown Highland Games since!
  • I have wanted to be a teacher since I was in Kindergarten. At that point I wanted to be a French teacher but now I want to teach secondary-level history.

Why did you choose Laurier?

I chose to come to Laurier Brantford primarily because of the small town feel it had. Coming from a small town myself, I was looking to immerse myself into a community rather than into the busy life of a larger style university! I understood that faculty-to-student ratios would be lower and there would be more of an opportunity to get involved and this was a really attractive quality in deciding on this campus!

Involvement on campus:

  • Volunteer for Laurier Students for Literacy
  • Volunteer for Recruitment and Admissions

Three Favourite Courses that I Have Taken at Laurier:

  • Museums and Monuments: Public History
  • Modern Europe: 1450-1789
  • History of Sea Power to 1914
