The thing I love most about LazSoc is the community we are a part of. Our Clubs committees and associations are filled with talented and ambitious individuals. The people I have met throughout my time at LazSoc have been incredible and has truly made my university experience even better than expected. There is a club and a place for everyone in this community!
I love speaking with students and meeting new people wherever I can. Please, if you ever are looking for answers to questions or just looking to chat, reach out and I am happy to have a conversation. You can reach me at email@example.com
In regards to my Lazaridis experience, I’d say what I love most is the sense of community and all of the people I have met along the way. Our clubs’ community is a great way to meet new people and develop new skills so I highly encourage everyone to get involved in any capacity that they can.
I love meeting new people and answering any questions you may have so please feel free to reach out! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Vice President of Technology
Hi my name is Andrew Liutiev and I am LazSoc's Vice President of Technology! I have been given the opportunity to lead an amazing team this year. We will be working together to innovate our digital platforms and create new ways engaging students especially during these times. If you have any ideas on how to improve student involvement across digital platforms shoot me a message!
As for advice, I got this from a mentor of mine but get involved and stay positive. You never know where your next opportunity is going to come from, so put yourself out there. "Many of us look back and will admit there was an element of chance, luck or simply being in the right place at the right time in landing opportunities. But you know what? Having a positive attitude will turn 'chance' into 'chances'. Positive attitudes draw people in, leave positive impressions and open doors you didn't know existed." - Casey Kretz. It's only a matter of time.
Please reach out if there is anything I can help you with :)
Product Management Director

Hi my name is Michael Veloso and I am a software developer for LazSoc 2020/2021. My role is to help make our digital platforms easily accessible and well organized to ensure students have the best experience when looking into what LazSoc has to offer.
I am a 3rd year BBA/Computer Science student and I’m most interested in pursing a future career involving marketing and databases but that can honestly change at any moment. Thanks to the Co-op program at Laurier, I have experience as a Python Programmer/Business Analyst and if you would like to hear more on that please hit me up.
My advice for any incoming students is to try as many new things as you can. This is a time in your life meant for experiencing new things and finding out what you like (and don’t like) so don’t be afraid of failing, you got plenty of time.
If you have any questions about me, the program I am in or my experience with Laurier or Co-op, please feel free to message me.
I am currently a 2nd year student in BBA and Computer Science at the University of Waterloo. My advice for incoming students is to work hard and be resilient. The biggest rewards don’t come easily and learning to deal with obstacles and failure is an essential part of growth. But don’t forget to have some fun while you’re at it!
If you have any suggestions, questions about my program, or just want to chat, please feel free to message me.

I am thrilled to be joining this team of incredibly motivated students, in order to help support and enhance your experience within the Lazaridis Community. One of the most important lessons that I’ve learned from my time at Laurier is that everyone is going through the same thing. You never have to feel scared or alone, and there are so many resources for you if you need support. Don’t be afraid to reach out to others, as everyone at Laurier is incredibly accepting and will do their best to help you out! If you ever need someone to talk to or some tips about how to best handle a course, I’d be more than happy to chat!

The transition to remote learning has been a challenge—but it’s one we’ve embraced with emboldened creativity and inspiration! I’m looking forward to all the cool initiatives LazSoc devises to deliver to you that same renowned Laurier undergraduate experience.
My most valuable piece of advice is also the most cliché: get involved, step outside your comfort zone, seek opportunities that challenge you. University is a pivotal chance to grow and I encourage you to take risks and make friends—so at the very least, you won’t be pulling all-nighters alone.
Always happy to chat and answer any questions I can whether it’s about Laurier, being a don—which is what I do with the rest of my time, or the best coffee on campus 🙂
