No matter when you graduated, you’re part of the Laurier community. For life.
That’s more than a slogan: the friendships you made here, and the network you’re part of, are somewhere you can always turn. And no matter how far your future takes you, you won’t be far away. There are more than 93,230 Laurier alumni living in over 85 countries.
Once you graduate you’re part of the Wilfrid Laurier University Alumni Association, which will keep you in touch with the university through magazines and newsletters and hook you up with discounts. Stay involved by joining a chapter or coming out to exclusive alumni events. Or simply connect by becoming part of Laurier’s network on LinkedIn. Make sure your contact information is up-to-date, so that you’re in the know about what’s happening at Laurier.
Career Support Even After You’ve Left Campus
Whether you’ve just entered the workforce or earned your degree decades ago, Laurier’s Career Development Centre is ready to help you with your career planning. Take advantage of career fairs, workshops and individual career counseling. You can also register for the Alumni Employment Service, which will email job listings tailored to your skills from companies seeking qualified Laurier alumni.
Pass your success to others. Remember when you left Laurier for the real world? You had to build a network, find that first job and figure out how to make it on your own. Now’s your chance to pass on the lessons you’ve learned to students who are following the same path. Join the Alumni Sharing Knowledge program and help a student with career advice, interview tips or guidance.
As alumni, you know first-hand the power of the Laurier experience — the sense of community, the care we have for the world around us and the education that challenges students to apply what they learn in the real world. Make sure this same experience is available for future students. Donate today to support the scholarships, teaching, facilities and more.
