Waterloo alumni share the little things that make self-isolation brighterBy Megan Vander Woude Office of Advancement
During these weeks of self-isolation and physical distancing, it’s important to find positive moments in daily life.
As Waterloo alumni all over the world stay home to prevent the spread of COVID-19, we asked them to share the small moments that bring them joy. From ice cream to video calls with family, we hope you find some comfort and inspiration in these messages from others in the UWaterloo community.
We’re all in this together.
