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

Creating a sense of unity and pride through Warrior Tribe

By increasing opportunities for University of Waterloo students to contribute to our vibrant campus, The Warrior Tribe is actively creating a sense of unity through study, sports, and most of all, spirit.

The Warrior Tribe celebrates UWaterloo pride and aims to be inclusive, providing students with new and exciting ways to succeed and maintain a healthy and active student body. This campus club pushes the importance of play and sport in the community, as well as student interaction, involvement, and awareness across the academic faculties by building school spirit. Throughout each academic term, The Warrior Tribe runs events that promote attendance at varsity games and participation in intramural sports. Community members are encouraged to attend the varsity games and cheer alongside the Warrior fans.

Creating meaningful, community-driven experiences at Peace Camp

Thirty-three excited young campers participated in last week’s Peace Camp at Conrad Grebel University College.

Youth ages 11 to 13 were busy making confetti paper mache bowls, playing games, and making new friends of different ages, ethnicities, and religions. On top of the array of activities, campers learned how to create peaceful changes in our community from several community members, including Elle Crevits of Food Not Waste, Brad Golding of Homelessness Everywhere Lacking Publicity, and Stephen Svenson of Patchwork Community Gardens. Under this year’s theme, Ripple Effect, Peace Campers were educated on how their actions, no matter how small, have the ability to create big impact.

Exploring the world of science at Kidspark

This past weekend, community members big and small explored the world of science with the University of Waterloo at Kidspark hosted by the City of Kitchener. The annual event creates a fun and interactive playground atmosphere for children and youth to engage in a range of activations led by various regional partners. By actively participating in this community-driven initiative, Waterloo’s Science Outreach and Engineering Science Quest (ESQ) have a unique opportunity to connect with the local community, share their knowledge and expertise, and impact innovators of the future.

Stargazing party mesmerizes community audiences

Last night, hundreds of members of our community came to campus to indulge in and learn about astronomy. Featuring a unique public lecture about space rocks followed by a stargazing party at Columbia Lake Fields, people of all ages were mesmerized by our solar system.

Circle of Life-Long Learning blends traditions of the past with generations of the future

Last week, the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre (WAEC) at the University of Waterloo’s St. Paul’s University College hosted its first ever Circle of Life-Long Learning interactive summer camp. The five-day program offered a fun and engaging learning experience for Aboriginal families - 13 youth and 8 caregivers - from across southwestern Ontario through a Higher Education Learning grant graciously provided by the Lyle S. Hallman Foundation.
