All Day Art Exhibition: Surface Tension (Multi-Day Event)
The Robert Langen Art Gallery's Fall 2016 exhibition, Surface Tension is an ongoing collaborative interdisciplinary sound and video work created by renowned Canadian artists Eve Egoyan (piano) and David Rokeby (installation). On Fridays during the exhibition run, visitors are invited to play the Disklavier themselves and to experience the ways in which the video projection responds to their inputs. We gratefully acknowledge Yamaha Canada Music and Music Plus for generously providing the Yamaha Disklavier Piano featured in the exhibit.

  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM Finding government policy and its analysis

    Finding public (government) policy can be daunting. Finding analysis of any given government policy before, during and after a policy’s implementation can be even more overwhelming.

    Learn some strategies for hunting down not only the policy documents, but also the steps that led up to the creation of the policy in the first place. Discover some ways to find out about the reception, impact, and analysis of the policy, including how you might consider the merits of these arguments.

  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM Student Exchange Program Waterloo Information Sessions

    Laurier has partnered with universities all over the world to offer exchange programs to our students. Currently, we have exchange agreements with more than 63 universities in 24 countries around the world. Studying abroad allows you to broaden your perspective of the world and gain and increased sense of self and independence while building skills transferable to future employment. If you participate in an international exchange, you continue to pay tuition to Laurier and receive Laurier credits but study at a university outside of Canada.

    The first step in the application process for the Student Exchange Program is attending an Information Session. After attending, you'll gain access to the application documents you need to apply.

    Please note: Students must have completed 10 Laurier credits before participating in the Student Exchange Program and have a minimum GPA of 7.

    Please see our website for Information Session location information.
