Laurentian University

School Introduction

With small class sizes averaging 19 students per professor, Laurentian provides an outstanding academic setting that fosters one-on-one discussions with faculty, research excellence and academic success. The Laurentian Federation (including Huntington University, Thorneloe University and the University of Sudbury), whose history dates back to the founding of Collège du Sacré-Coeur in 1913, welcomes close to 9,000 students every year in a friendly, bilingual environment, and inclusive and multicultural community. In addition to state-of-the-art laboratories, many libraries, eight student residences and several food outlets, Laurentian offers its students a variety of sports and recreation facilities, such as an Olympic-sized pool, running tracks, a climbing wall and hiking trails to further add to the intellectual development and dynamism of each individual..
