Students will also help with home construction activities to support the work of Habitat for Humanity El Salvador.

May 18 and 27, 2018: Field Course in Belgium and France

Laurier students participating in a Belgium and France field course, led by Associate Professor Peter Farrugia, will spend two weeks touring sites related to Canadians in the First and Second World Wars. They will visit battlefields, cemeteries, monuments and museums in various locations, including Ypres, Vimy, Passchendaele, Dieppe, the Normandy beaches and Bruges. As part of the course, students will walk the fields of battle, discuss the factors that led to success or failure and explore the ways in which these battles have been remembered.
