Amanda Dodaro, Health Promotion

I love that all parts of the Laurentian campus have fun and engaging things for students to take part in. For example, residence is constantly putting on events— there is hardly a weekend without something fun to do. Whether it be euchre nights, pumpkin carving, sports, boat cruises or bowling nights, there is always something to participate in. Although the events are fun, the friendships I have made through participating are even better. This contributes to my favourite aspect of the Laurentian experience, which is seeing at least one person I know everywhere I go. Whether it’s in class, at the gym, checking my mail or even in the Tim Horton’s line up, I always see a familiar face.
