Hey first years! Welcome to Laurier and the Lazaridis Students’ Society. Our team is ready to make sure you kick off your University experience on the right foot, and we are so excited to invite you all to our annual flagship event - O-Day (Orientation Day).

Our event itinerary includes a kickoff presentation to introduce LazSoc and who we are, as well as an alumni panel discussion featuring some very talented Laurier graduates, and a presentation by our featured keynote speaker Neetu Godara - Co-Founder of SoCIAL LITE Vodka.
Throughout the day, students will be placed in breakouts with small groups led by their “CEO” who is an upper-year student. Here you will have the opportunity to ask questions and get advice in a more intimate setting from someone who has experienced Laurier and the Laz community. You’ll also get a chance to make friends with some of your classmates.
In the middle of the day, students will get to choose breakout sessions in different sectors of business to attend such as finance, marketing, entrepreneurship, etc. Leading these sessions are corporate sponsors from awesome companies like Sephora, BDO, and Mosea. We are also offering some fun sessions that talk about how to make the most of your first-year experience, and some study tips for post-secondary education.
The event will conclude with students having the opportunity to network with our 25 clubs and find out where they belong in our community - there’s something for everyone!
We can’t wait to see all you Golden Hawks at O-Day 2021!!
