My name is Angelika Jarski and I am the current Vice President of Student Engagement on the Lazaridis Students’ Society.
In my position, my team and I work together with other portfolios to put on a number of large scale social and academic events. This ranges from Orientation Day in September for first years to Graduation Ball in June for those finishing their university careers. On Thursday November 24th, take advantage of Snowball 2016: Fire & Ice, a social dinner and dance event open to all LazSoc and Non-LazSoc members. Check out the facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/events/640600699435336/ and buy your tickets at snowball.lazsoc.ca now! We have a lot of great stuff planned, so don’t miss out!
As midterms are ramping up, remember to take a step back and enjoy your university experiences. I hope everyone is looking forward to a little break from the stress of school to take part in some Halloween festivities!
Good luck on the rest of your midterms and assignments and if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me!

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what three things would you have and why?
I’m going to assume that I have the basics for survival (because those are no fun to write about). First, I’d bring my journal. I write a lot and I have a feeling that you would have some pretty crazy revelations if you were stranded. Second, the perfect glass of Sangria to enjoy while I watch dolphins jump over the sunset. Third, an all-inclusive private yacht to take me back to civilization once I get tired of the ultimate beach getaway.
You can only live in one country for the rest of your life, what country would you choose and why?
Canada, without a doubt! I’m currently on exchange and have had the opportunity to both live in and travel to a lot of new places. I’ve loved every place and have been amazed at the beautiful and unique cultures that I’ve been exposed to. But exchange has also gifted me with the opportunity to take a step back from the place I’m from and think a little more objectively about it, and it’s really given me a new appreciation for how amazing of a place Canada is. We are incredibly lucky to live there and I’m going to try and take that for granted less often.
What is one event in your life that has made you who you are today?
I think the event that has had the biggest impact on my life has honestly been deciding to go to Laurier. Laurier has given me endless opportunities, an incredible education that has taught me about the world around me, and the BEST people I have ever met. Ever. Most of all, Laurier is a place where everyone feels so comfortable completely being themselves, so it’s really given me the opportunity to become whoever I want to. Accepting Laurier is so big for me because it has led to hundreds of other positive experiences in my life. (Can you tell that I’m one of those people who is going to be bawling at graduation?).
What’s your favourite study spot on campus?
The Solarium – especially when it thunderstorms.
Favourite Song right now?
I’m not over Frank Ocean’s new album yet; favourite song is “Nights”.
What’s your motto?
I watched an incredible speech a couple of months ago that talked about how we ought to “stop trying to be perfect, and start trying to be brave”. I’m really trying to learn how to live with that more in mind.
