A graduate and Schulich scholarship recipient reflects

The Schulich Leader Scholarship I received in 2013 allowed me to focus most of my time and effort on my academic studies during my time at UWaterloo. 

My Tip of the Cap to UWaterloo

Whenever someone asks me how I got my start in media - whether it's an interview, podcast, blog, classroom talk or just someone curious and looking for advice - I always use the same joke.

My Double Life

During the day you will find me as a Senior Lecturer at the Centre for Quantum Software and Information, which is located at the University of Technology Sydney in sunny Sydney, Australia! By night, I am a husband and father of four of my own budding scientists. And when everyone is asleep, I work on my hobby of writing and illustrating children’s books.

So I finally got my ears pierced. It might strike you as odd that I had never had my ears pierced. Not once… ever…nada.

As UWaterloo celebrates its 60th Anniversary, our UWaterloo Family Celebrates its 50th

Kelly's UWaterloo Family

In 1967, the pizza to order in residence was the “seafood special.” Being covered in anchovies, it guaranteed that no one would want to share or nab your pizza.  This particular pizza was the favourite of six Civil Engineering students that would continue to share meals together for many years to come.

How Doubling Down Paid Off

Uppi's profile

In the summer of 2015, I decided to double down and bet on myself – I believed the odds were in my favour. Fast forward to almost two years later and I have to admit it’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made and it feels great to be right.

Choices

John Johnston Profile

In 1966, I was a graduating high school student, and like others, was applying for university.  I accepted an offer from the University of Waterloo, not knowing very much about UWaterloo, but because it was the farthest from home (and my parents were unlikely to make drop-in weekend visits) and my good high-school friend would be attending WLU (Waterloo Lutheran University, at that time). Sound teenage logic.

From the OUA to the Olympics (and 3 lessons I learned along the way)

From the OUA to the Olympics (and 3 lessons I learned along the way)

I graduated from the University of Waterloo in 2015 with a Master of Mathematics degree, but I've always been involved in sports in some way. People usually think I'm looking to work in analytics, but I'm more interested in game day presentation player intros, hype-worthy music, Jumbotrons, and all. This past August, I became the first public address announcer from an Ontario University Athletics program to ever announce at the Olympic Games.

#UWGOLD + Pi Day = Perfection

Linda Thomas at the GOLD on the GO event series

It was a big week for me last week, with annual events including St. Patrick’s Day and my birthday being topped up with my first ever UW Pi Day experience, and my last two events as keynote speaker in the UW GOLD on the Go series.  My connection with UW has never been stronger, I couldn’t be more proud to be part of such a prestigious group of alumni.

Growing up Waterloo

Cynthia Cheng and family

Back row: Anthony Fok (BMath '80), Stephanie Cheng (BMath '08), Cynthia Cheng (BSc '10), Iris Leung (BA '08), Keith Cheng (BMath '77), Gabriel Cheng (BSE '17) Front row: Anna Fok (BA '80), Joseph Leung (BMath '79), Alan Cheng (BMath '84), Lucilla Cheng (BMath '77)

I was born a Warrior.  For math alumni, it means in a sample size of 36 family members, 42% of my extended family and 100% of my immediate family are Waterloo alumni.  For AHS alumni, it means I am unstoppable.
