Xlerate Lazaridis

Your first steps to success.


You do not need to register to become a general member. If you attend at least three of our events throughout the year, you will automatically be considered as a general member for your Laurier Experience Record.
Like most LazSoc clubs, our executive team is composed of directors and VPs. However, Xlerate is unique because we only hire first-years for our director positions in order to provide leadership experience for incoming students. Directors are hired in September; VP hiring begins towards the end of March, and these positions are open to all students.
All of our event content is and will be posted on our Instagram and Facebook pages. You can also sign up for our mailing list to receive emails about our events and activities. Follow us on your preferred platform to stay up to date on everything we have in store for the year!
We run events all throughout the year to help you academically and professionally. Our BU 111 and 121 Quizbowls occur at the end of each semester to help you with the math portion in both these required courses. Our flagship First Year Case Conference takes place in January - last year, we had over 230 delegates making it the largest case competition at Laurier. We have various other events and opportunities in the works, so follow us on social media or sign up for our mailing list to stay up to date on everything Xlerate!
Having a mentor is incredibly valuable at any stage of life. Moreover, finding a mentor willing to invest their time and energy in you can be difficult. That’s why taking part in a mentorship program like Xlerate Select is an incredible opportunity for a first-year student. In the past, mentees have reported increased confidence levels and success in their first-year as a result of the mentoring relationships formed in Xlerate Select. If you sign up, we assure you that you will be better equipped to crush your first-year as well!
