Transform One Family Relationship this Holiday Season

Deb Dejong

When I left UWaterloo for grad school, I could not have known the road ahead. I was off to make a difference in the lives of individuals and families. Two decades ago, that meant meeting individuals one-on-one. Now, there is a whole online community where health promotion, education, and support is easily accessible for many people. How times change!

Reunion: self-exposure

SURP class of '81

We dash through life, our eyes fixed intently on a busy present and the promises of the future.  Days of sameness and moments of revelation stream by until we hit a milestone.  A transitional birthday, the death of a loved one, an invitation to a class reunion might make us stop, take a deep breath and glance back over our shoulders to take stock of our journey. 

Volunteering at Family Welcome

On September 4th and 5th alumni, faculty and staff joined the housing and residence teams at the Family Welcome, where they were positioned in different residences to greet family and friends of our newest Warriors. Karen Carter (BA ’05) shares her experience as an alumni volunteer.

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!

#UWaterlooDoesAsia – Fall 2015

Alumni volunteers

This past November, I had the great pleasure of representing the University of Waterloo in Hong Kong, Singapore and Jakarta. Alumni Relations co-hosted three global events over five days, connecting with close to 800 alumni and friends, as well as dozens of UWaterloo co-op and exchange students who were abroad in these locations for their fall term.  

I’m pleased to share some highlights and photos, as captured along the way…  

What I learned from Alumni Relations

I am a fourth year Therapeutic Recreation student and I am currently on my last co-op term working for Alumni Relations.

International Education Week

The Cola Road

As the new Programs Assistant on the Alumni Relations team, and a recent graduate from UW, I am filled with pride when I hear about the great ideas that are changing the world involving our Alumni…not that I'm biased or anything.

An event review: Family Day with the Blue Jays

One of the great things about moving to Waterloo 28 years ago to attend UW, and basically never leaving, is the sense of community and continuity that comes with living near your alma mater. As my 10-year-old son Alex has grown up here in Waterloo, he’s been able to experience some of the campus spirit that his dad took part in over the years. (Not *that* kind of campus spirit; he hasn’t been to the Bombshelter yet.)
