History Students' Association

The Laurier Brantford History Students' Association (HSA) is an organization that encourages historical discussion through fun events and workshops at Laurier Brantford. It is comprised of both students and faculty who organize fun events and provide many opportunities to meet new people and establish a closer relationship with the past.

Past events include debates, career nights, Lunar New Year celebrations, Guy Fawkes Night, workshops and "meet the professor" night.

We are always accepting new members and there are many different ways to become involved.
