All the dogs representing Alumni Relations

Since the start of the Alumni Relations blog three-and-a-half-years ago, we have had more than one hundred different blog posts from our alumni, students, and staff! From alumni events, to behind-the-scenes peeks during Convocation and Reunion, to personal alumni biographies, the past few years have been filled with memorable posts!

Waterloop



The University of Waterloo’s student engineering design team, “Waterloop,” has earned a place as finalists in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Design Competition. The team is now fabricating and will be testing their final prototype pod on a one­-mile test track, outside of SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California later this summer.

Tiffanie and the Alumni Relations team



This past winter, I completed my first co-op term as the Communications and Marketing Assistant for Alumni Relations. I feel like through the course of my time here, I have developed a deeper grasp of the written and interpersonal communication skills that are needed to succeed in both my academics and pursuing a career in the future.

A month and a half ago, I lived in Toronto and worked for a big bank. Now, I live in Hong Kong and work for a small software company. “Come help me run my business” my old UWaterloo roommate said during his visit to Toronto last Christmas. “Sure, why not” I replied. It’s one of those things you agree to over beers, and never really expect to follow up on. Oops.

On June 7th, 2016 I celebrated in the 16th Annual President’s Golf Tournament with my fellow student-athletes and supporters of Warrior athletics at the Westmount Golf and Country Club. This is my third year volunteering in this spectacle—yes, it really is a spectacle!

I still remember the very first day I worked at UWaterloo’s convocation. I had just wrapped up a co-op term at the Registrar’s Office and was provided with the opportunity to usher during the Spring 2012 convocation ceremonies.

Are you an import/export business, a non-profit organization, looking for business name ideas, or in the midst of finding the best innovation strategy? A post-secondary education allows a person to understand many things, one of which is that the process of learning can be quickly refined, in order to enable an effective use of resources and time, towards a desired outcome.

It’s no surprise that Lumotune transparent displays, which change from opaque to transparent with the touch of a button, captured the attention of a full-house at the California Pitch Alumni Event in April.
