Can it really be 25 years?! We remember the first week well – a huge line up in the pouring rain to purchase textbooks, lab coats and of course a dissection kit at the Bookstore!
It seems like yesterday that we were in the Eng Lecture Hall, packed to its maximum with eager students… then suddenly it was Convocation in 1990 at the PAC with lots of smiles and friends that would last a lifetime. From beginning to end, there were laughs, too many Bombshelter Rock n Roll nights, and lots of cramming/all-nighters at Village 2 or someone’s place off campus.
We polled the class and some of our favourite memories were: poutine and big screen music videos at Fed Hall, the Whitefish Falls field trip, touring the Earth Sciences Museum with Peter Russell, Dr. Morgan’s, Dr. Farvolden’s, and Dr. Karrow’s lectures, group singing of "Bye Bye Miss American Pie,” laughing in CHEM 124 when the Prof could not find his glasses, the Analytical Chem lab when we would compare silver nitrate stains and sulfuric acid holes in our jeans, spelunking through the campus tunnels, Frosh week, the famous scavenger hunt that resulted in 24 guys getting mohawk haircuts, the Frosh pub crawl, Wat Pubs (especially in Toronto), green beer, Phillip Street townhouses, work terms, Village 2 (now rightfully called Ron Eydt Village - a legend of a man), the Algonquin Ecology field course, the Girls of Summer at Canada's Wonderland, the erupting flask in first year Chem lab, and of course Oktoberfest.
There’s many more great memories where that came from, but that’s enough reminiscing until we meet in October in person. The Class Reunion Organizing Team is hoping to bring together as many Class of 1990 graduates as possible to attend the UWaterloo Reunion 2015 event, Oct. 2-4. On Friday, October 2nd we are having a class get together at the “Board Room” in the Heuther Hotel for dinner at 6:30 pm. Please let us know if you will be there by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. On Sat. Oct. 3rd, the UWaterloo Reunion 2015 events sound amazing with a Science Faculty Tour in the morning, followed by lunch at Fed Hall and a Warriors/Golden Hawks football game. And what better way to end the day than celebrating Oktoberfest at the Bombshelter with dinner and live music! For the UWaterloo Reunion 2015 events, check out the Alumni Relation's website and please register.
