We must rely on our community now more than ever. In response to COVID-19, community engagement such as mentorship and events will operate through our virtually platforms. Please sign up to volunteer and we will keep you posted.
I was happy to share my time chatting with students about preparing for the workforce, as I feel I would have greatly benefited from that opportunity myself when I was an undergrad. I found this experience to be rewarding and welcome future opportunities to be engaged in student-alumni networking initiatives.
Many ways to engage with our students
Our alumni and friends are an integral part of The University of Waterloo's world-renowned experiential learning and our highly networked entrepreneurial culture, so share your knowledge, experiences and wisdom.
The University of Waterloo is home to the largest post-secondary co-op program of its kind, with over 60% of undergraduate students enrolled. You are invited to become a part of training the next generation of the workforce.
Keep in touch with other alumni and friends
We’d love to have you join us at an event soon to reconnect with our wonderful alumni and friends. If you are a natural connector, consider the Class Champions programs which support alumni volunteers to act as class reps; promoting their class reunion, reaching out to former classmates, and if they wish, even planning a special class activity.
We love hearing about the fantastic things alumni are up to after graduation. We have had many talented alumni share their stories with us for the Waterloo Magazine, alumni e-newsletter, the Alumni Blog and our own alumni profiles page.
