February 2015

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

The Women’s Centre Bra & Panty Drive

Imagine being female, living on the street or in a shelter, with no access to menstrual products or clean undergarments.

Sadly, this is a real problem that many girls and women in this predicament face. Although most shelters receive loads of donated hygiene products and articles of clothing, female-specific essentials remain scarce. Consequently, women residing in these conditions often have to make do or go without.

Haircuts for Hope

This past January 23rd 2015, a few simple snips made a big difference.

By hosting Haircuts for Hope in the SLC Atrium, the Renison Academic Counsel and the Social Development Studies Society were able to raise over $500 for the local charity, Monica Place: a shelter in Waterloo Region that provides a safe and healthy environment for pregnant and parenting youth.

Stratford campus is building connections to our community

The University of Waterloo appreciates the remarkable opportunity that the City of Stratford has provided in welcoming us into the community. This is a long-term relationship that will be a core component of Stratford's bright economic future. 

We have already experienced substantial success here in Stratford. From a standing start just three years ago, we were pleased to welcome 350 students to classes in Stratford this past September.

Women's Hockey Family Literacy Day

The University of Waterloo Women’s Hockey Team partnered with the Waterloo Public Library during “Stories N’Skate for Family Literacy Day” to provide an afternoon of fun for the whole family. The Lady Warriors were able to interact with the children one-on-one through crafts, activities and stories before everyone headed onto the ice for the free skate. The purpose of this event was to help the community join together in nurturing future generations through literacy and activities. The Stories N’Skate encourages children to enjoy reading and to stay active throughout their lives, while also giving the Warrior athletes an opportunity to give back to their community that has supported them through their athletic careers.
