"O-Week gave me the chance to bond and form life-long friendships with my floormates and other first year students! All the O-Week events and activities were extremely fun and helped me fall in love with Laurier and showed me everything the school had to offer! I would encourage every first-year student to participate as much as possible because it's a great intro to your undergrad journey and an amazing opportunity to create memories you'll never forget!"

"Orientation Week was a huge part of my university experience from my first to last year at Laurier. It exposed me to an incredible community of people as well as allowed me to give back to a school that gave so much to me. The memories from my 4 Orientation Weeks will last me a lifetime!"

O-Team Executive 2018 - 2019

"Participating in Orientation Week is the perfect way to shake off any initial nerves that being a first-year student has. O-Week creates this sense of community where you are able to meet other students outside your residence and experience the opportunities that campus has to offer. I had such a great experience that it inspired me to volunteer with the Students' Union for the next three years."

"O-Week was such a turning point in my life, I went from being a nervous wreck on moving day to feeling more at home than I ever could've imagine in the span of a week! It solidified some of my best friendships and encouraged me to become an active member of the Students' Union. Without the unconditional support and positivity of my Icebreakers, I never would've had the confidence to get as involved as I did, I'm so grateful for O-Week!"

"O-Week is a must have experience going into university that's full of good vibes and fun! It's definitely where I met most of my closest friends and it's a great way to meet people in your classes. If you're big on networking, I'd highly recommend it."
