April 2017

From its founding in 1957, the University of Waterloo has defied convention, breaking new ground, crossing old boundaries and challenging the status quo. Our 60th anniversary has been an opportunity to celebrate the stories that have shaped us, and to paint a vision of a bright future yet to come.

Waterloo launches Celebration 2017 Legacy Project

Celebration 2017 hangouts

On April 11, 2017, the University of Waterloo officially launched their Celebration 2017 Legacy Project at the Bombshelter Pub. Staff, students and professors were invited to kick-off the celebrations and encouraged to leave their legacy by participating in the design competition.

Along with the other celebratory events to mark both the University’s 60th anniversary and Canada’s 150th birthday, Waterloo unveiled a legacy project for student teams to re-design a creative student space in the Arts Quad — and win $10,000 cash if their final design is chosen.
