September 2014

From public lectures to signature celebrations such as Canada Day, we're honoured to invite our community to the University of Waterloo.

Olympian and Alumna Heather Moyse returns to campus for Reunion 2014

The University of Waterloo opened its doors to the community in celebration of Reunion 2014 on Saturday. The event boasted a full schedule of exciting events including a free keynote lecture by alumna and two-time Olympic gold medalist, Heather Moyse (BSc 2000).

 

UWaterloo Takes Back the Night

Wearing black and gold, the group of UWaterloo students, faculty and staff stood out among the over 300 participants at the 31st annual Take Back the Night march and rally.  Numerous departments and groups on campus, such as the Federation of Student’s Women’s Centre, brought out members to this year’s event. Take Back the Night addresses the rights of women, children, and trans*people to be safe, without violence, regardless of age, creed, location, numbers, or attire.  

Life long learning

As part of our very nature the University of Waterloo is committed to spurring a sense of curiosity, provoking thought leadership and fostering lifelong learning.  As a leading academic institution it is Waterloo’s role to ensure that these values expand well beyond the walls of our campus and into our communities.

Come in the Doors Open

Each year as part of Doors Open Waterloo Region we invite our community to join us for a special look inside our buildings and to learn more about what goes on at the University of Waterloo.  At our locations this year Waterloo offers the public the opportunity to step inside our doors and learn about the human eye, see medicinal plants, and explore the last industrial plant built on the Grand River. 

Be sure to visit Waterloo’s School of Architecture, School of Optometry, and School of Pharmacy as we open our doors to the public on Saturday September 20, 2014.
