From Geology to Valedictorian

Richard Nguyen and a colleague with balloons

5 years ago, I made an impulsive decision. It was late December and I had just received an offer of admissions to study Geology at Waterloo.

Leaping through Lily Pads; Launching for Success

Kaylen

As a child, I’d go on canoe adventures with my dad. He would take me to the reeds where we’d admire the stillness of the water. He’d pick me a buttercup flower while we’d enjoy the beauty of lily pads, watch for frogs, and look for ripples when they’d leap from one lily pad to another. This imagery is something I hold dear and captures my unique UWaterloo “lifer” academic adventure.

SPECS & SPINES OPTOMETRY AND CHIROPRACTIC

Specs & Spines grand opening

As siblings attending elementary school in south Etobicoke, we never entertained the idea that one day we would be opening a joint clinic in our old stomping grounds.  Ironically enough, that’s exactly what happened this past April. 

Art and Science

Art

What can one say about the relationship between art and science? I can’t speak authoritatively on the matter, except to say that I feel that the two have always sat, not across an insurmountable divide, but comfortably side by side.

Like many of my peers, my time at the University of Waterloo can be summarized as a unique juxtaposition of science and innovation. Personally, my math and business double degree gave me excellent insight into both sides of the entrepreneurial equation: the tangible and intangible.

The Life and Achievements of a UWaterloo Astronomer

In 1971, I enrolled at University of Waterloo at age 15, the youngest student ever up to that time at UWaterloo. After obtaining my BSc in 1976, I met Dr. Stephen Hawking who gave me the life-long resolve to persevere against any odds. I returned to UWaterloo via the correspondence program to earn a BA in Classical Studies in 1990.

Science Class of 1990 25th Reunion

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!

Contribute to Science! Grow your Library

As a mother with two young boys, I am always looking for fun activities that we can do together.  If we can get out of the house, or even go for a little drive, it’s a bonus. Throw in a learning experience at the Infant Studies Group labs and a new book – for free! – and we’ll be there.
