Hey there UG I was just curious if anybody here goes/went to Laurentian University. I was just accepted to start attending next fall (I am currently attending the Georgian Branch) and curious what you think. Any comments?

Any university is a good one. Squirrel yourself away for as long as possible, come out when the economy isn't doing a premature impression of a suicide case.

Economic hibernation, if you will

xD I am pretty psyched to go, I just haven't heard that much about the university to be honest. I don't think I know anyone who is going from my old high school unfortunately.

Cool, I almost did the same thing as you, take Laurentian classes through Georgian for a couple years then actually go to Laurentian, but a friend of mine told me he hated it at Georgian and Sudbury didn't seem very appealiing to me even though a bunch of my close friends went there. Barrie FTW though.

Seriously you made the right choice. Georgian (Barrie) is pretty damn fail I am not going to lie. Do you know what they think of the Sudbury branch?

Also, under your avatar it says "Ottawa" did you end up going to U of Ottawa? If so my very best friend also attends that school.

My sister dropped out of Georgian after one semester (embarrassing huh) and although it's cool to hear about other people in Ontario, I don't know much if anything about Laurentian. I got my offer of admission from Carleton, but I'm holding out for Waterloo.

haha I can see that being a roadblock.

I can say that it's pretty friendly around the school and residence, Sudbury is a good place for having a good time (well, for not being big like say, Toronto...) I'd recommend LU, it's a good choice.

Hell, I'll totally be your town tour guide.

DON'T HOLD OUT FOR WATERLOO.

Unless you're like Math or Engineering. Arts here sucks. I'm in arts. Most boring first year ever. And trust me, I'm out there trying to make it unboring.

I was thinking about Laurentian, because they're 1 of about 5 universities in Canada that offer a degree in Italian (which is what I'm doing). But I live in St. Catharines, which is nowhere near Sudbury... I didn't want to move too far away.

Yeah i've heard good things about Laurentian, kinda out of the way but good academically. And it's good and bad going to a uni where you know literally nobody, im one of 3 people from my graduating class (450) that went to Guelph-Humber, but it's kind of better cuz i actually like the new school experience and meeting everyone and making new friends and such.

That was like me at Georgian, I think four came from my school but I wasn't really friends with any of the people who went. I didn't know them that well I guess... I always took university bound classes in high school and they took college level so we didn't have many classes together.
