Wilfrid Laurier University puts knowledge to work through an innovative balance of real world involvement and in-class learning, a hallmark of the Laurier learning experience. Co-op work terms, work-study programs, on-campus jobs and Community Service-Learning opportunities are designed to help students relate what they learn in the classroom to what they experience outside of it. Our distinct approach to experiential learning means that students complete their studies with relevant real-world experience, something employers value in our graduates.
No matter how you choose to live your Laurier experience, you’re a Golden Hawk, which means you’re part of a tight-knit, supportive community that knows how to aim high, work hard and take advantage of some truly amazing opportunities to make a difference. Ask any of our more than 100,000 graduates and they’ll tell you that their experience at Laurier helped to shape the people they are today. Now it’s your turn.
Workshop Description for “Design Your Future”
Abby Goodrum will be running a workshop called Design Your Future as a way for students to start actively focusing their time and energy on areas that fulfill them.

Ultimately, designing their future through “design thinking.”
