This week, as many as 6,500 students will cross the stage in the Physical Activities Complex to receive their Waterloo degree. One undergraduate from each Faculty will be awarded an Alumni Gold Medal, which symbolizes not only the student’s accomplishments, but also the proud tradition of exploration and leadership to which all of our alumni belong.
Alumni Gold Medals have graced the convocation gowns of our top students since 1970. The Royal Canadian Mint has produced these medals in the past — but in the true spirit of Waterloo, we’ve decided to make them ourselves.
Watch the Alumni Gold Medal creation below.
