Spring forward in CLV

Ekin

Hi everyone, it’s Ekin!

I know it is hard to believe when you look outside, but spring term is around the corner! Hopefully it will start getting warmer soon but if this is your first summer in Waterloo, be prepared for very warm days. I know it is hard to imagine now, but it can get more than 40 degrees in summer here!

Even though I got to do some pretty cool summer things (like biking from Waterloo to Toronto in 8 hours!), I was mostly heads down in my work. Fortunately, I took couple of weeks off to go and spend time with my family before getting back to research this fall term.
