The LazSoc Competition Subsidy
The Lazaridis Society recognizes that attending cases or competitions at another University or in a different city carries a financial burden. We want to support our members who would like to represent Laurier at cases and competitions outside of our campus community. Students can request for expenses related to competing in cases and competitions to be subsidized through the application on the "Apply for a Subsidy" page.
RISE Case Competition - October 2019
"The event was a success as we had the opportunity to network with some great students and sponsors, in addition to further developing our case analysis skills." - Kyle Collins
