    Students on move-in day at Grebel

    This September, 288 students travelled from across Canada and the USA, as well as from Indonesia, Sudan, Vietnam, and Singapore, to reach their destination of Conrad Grebel University College at the University of Waterloo in Ontario. These students, 124 of whom are new to Grebel, brought with them an eagerness to learn, connect, and create. Along with this eagerness, upper-year students, who make up more than half of Grebel students, maintain the tradition of support and belonging for which the Grebel community is so well known.
