(Updated June 23, 2020)
With Laurentians seeking information on our engagement and fundraising programs during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are providing this webpage to help with quick access to answers. Please know the University remains open and operational while students continue their learning remotely. We will work to keep this page updated as additional decisions are made.
Every Laurentian is invited to take advantage of virtual engagement options including “Laurentian Connection,” the Laurentian Book Club, helpful webinars and more! Find additional information about these and other programs that are allowing Laurentians to engage with the University and each other virtually by clicking the link below.
Those Reunion milestones and affinities affected by the cancellation of Reunion Weekend 2020 will be invited to participate alongside Reunion milestones next year, which was originally scheduled for June 3-6, 2021, but final dates have yet to be determined. More information will be forthcoming.
The University has cancelled all on- and off-campus summer events and gatherings indefinitely. Options for fall off-campus events and gatherings are being considered.
Exciting news! Thanks to the generosity of over 400 Laurentians, over $100,000 was given to the Emergency Student Assistance Fund. With current student need from COVID-19 met through this effort, should you be interested in supporting our students, consider a gift towards another very important student need: student scholarships.
At this time, all direct appeals for support have been paused. However, our staff is continuing to work with those Laurentians who wish to support the University at this time.
