For Franco Solimano (BSc ’10) and Spencer Small (BA ’12), the favourite part of each day is their commute.

It is a chance for them to have an informal debrief on their working day, keep in touch with how they feel about the semester, swap the latest news on campus and discuss learning opportunities and personal growth.

The couple are both UWaterloo alumni, but only started dating as university employees after meeting online in 2016. Today, Solimano works with graduate students in Columbia Lake Village, and Small works as a counsellor in the Engineering Undergrad Office.

“Even though we don’t work together, it does feel really nice to both belong to the same community,” said Solimano.
