Mature & Part-Time Students’ Commissioner



Hello there,

My name is Matthew Knox and I will be the Mature & Part-Time Students’ Commissioner forthe 2017/2018 school year. Like many of my esteemed colleagues on the LSU, I am currently completing a Bachelor of Social Work and will be graduating in the spring of 2018.

Having previously completed a Bachelor of Political Science in 2012 at York University, I feel well equipped to converse with both mature and new students about the highs, lows, hardships, and general chaos that makes up a university experience. My first year at York began with the now-infamous 85 day long strike of 2008-09, and my experience at Laurentian has consisted of the tragic closing of the Barrie Campus, along with my fellow students and I going through the stressful accreditation process of Laurentian’s BSW program. Again, the general chaos that makes up a university experience… all without mentioning tuition, rent, work and kids!

I hope to contribute to the highs and help to address the challenges experienced by mature and part-time students in the upcoming school year. Thank you very much for taking the time to read my life story thus far. I hope to meet you in the halls and collaborate with you to make your time at Laurentian as rewarding and fun as possible.

Feel free to contact me at
