  • It’s Not Bribery, It’s… Okay, It’s Bribery. Free Food, Though.

    I have this thing where I frequently order fast food after 10pm and shame eat it in my car in empty parking lots. The people in the Wendy’s drive through are getting to know me by name. It’s a problem.

    The Terrace is trying something out on Friday that could help me and others like me. In Eat This, Not That fashion, instead of stuffing my face with a hamburger on one of those trendy pretzel buns and smothered in bright orange synthetic cheese sauce, I can stop by The Terrace after 11am to try some samples from their new Healthy Kitchen.

    And hey, did you know you could voice your opinion about our on campus food emporiums? Sound off and let us know the good, the bad, and the shameful.

    A new Strategic Plan for the Students’ Union is in the works. 
    Next up, all students will have the opportunity to give their input. Keep an eye on your myLaurier email for more info.

    Is Top Hat Required on Your Syllabus ?

    If yes, shoot Chris a quick email at and let him know which course you’re taking.

  • It’s Fall. Leaves are turning, there’s a cool breeze in the air (okay, not today), and everything tastes like pumpkin. Here’s one more Fall tradition, we’re filling our volunteer teams for the Students’ Union. Yes, that’s right, hiring is open at

    It’s as easy as visiting the site and filling out an application for the team you want to be a part of. Here’s a STARR cheat sheet, if you need something to reference while writing.

  • What’s Your Fave O-Week Memory?

    We want to hear your favourite O-Week memory. Let us know in the comments, yeah?

    Sam sat down with Kaipa, our Director of Orientation in Waterloo last week, just before O-Week hit into full swing. Listen in to hear about the important stuff, like fave Beyonce jams, what to bring to a desert island and more.

  • What Happens When a Director of the Board Steps Down?

    A few weeks ago a member of the Board stepped down from their position as Director. As of the August 23rdboard meeting, the remaining directors decided not to fill the vacant seat. You might be wondering why that is – totally valid!
    It’s not out of the ordinary for a Director to step down from their position for any number of reasons. We have a strong board with 14 Directors who are excited about their role. This can be used as a great opportunity to transition through to next year where the board will only consist of 12 directors as opposed to 15.
