Event Details

We'll be providing you with key information and updates for events over the next few weeks. Make sure you check back over the summer so you can plan out your Orientation experience.

Shinerama

Shinerama is Canada’s largest postsecondary fundraiser, originating at Laurier in 1961. Each year students continue to raise funds and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis, the common fatal genetic disease in North America affecting children and young adults. 

Laurier Shinerama consistently has the largest campaign in Canada, with the most notable event being the infamous Shine Day that takes place on the Saturday of Orientation.

Experience one of the many ways that makes us proud golden hawks – how our Laurier community gives back.
