  • 3:30 PM - 4:30 PM "Stay Golden" Mural Unveiling

    Join President Deborah MacLatchy at the unveiling of the new “Stay Golden” mural at the Waterloo Campus Welcome Center!

    In the spring, our Welcome Center team applied to the Student Life Levy to commission an artist to design a mural for the Welcome Center. It is located on the main wall you see when you walk though the doors into the Peters and Schlegel Buildings.

    Our vision was to have an artistic and iconic Laurier mural that would help communicate Laurier tone and personality of student life as soon as people enter this space. We want it to inspire and empower school spirit. The mural encompasses the pride of being a Laurier Golden Hawk in an impactful and visual way, as well as being a photo opp for guests, students, and graduates to visit, take pictures with, and commemorate their time at Laurier. The theme of the mural is, “Stay Golden”.

    This does not mean that the FSG leaders will teach you the content, but they will help you enhance your understanding of course material, and they can also help students with understanding assignment requirements.
