Nicholas Richardson wanted to experience the full potential of his time at university. A well-rounded student in high school, Richardson performed in musicals, played soccer, and participated on the trivia team. It was important to him to get involved and engaged in a number of activities once he started his studies at the University of Waterloo.
Richardson wanted to keep up all of his interests, and getting involved was a great way to meet people. As a Mathematical Physics major, he met many students in his Physics classes that were also involved in the PhysClub. He participated in movie nights, integral bees and astro fires and also helped run PhysClub seminars and elections. Yet as in high school, Richardson also wanted to keep up with music and sports.
