Waterloo Engineering is celebrating International Education Week from September 21 to 25. Three of our students share what they learned from spending an academic or co-operative exchange term overseas last year. Hear the highlights of their experiences from embracing a new culture to discovering a new favourite cheese.
This year marks the 35th anniversary of the Fun Run. While there have been many changes over the years, this event still remains a favourite among alumni and the UWaterloo community. Despite current circumstances, we still want to bring you a fun opportunity to be active, show off your Waterloo pride, and connect with the UWaterloo community. So, for the first time ever, our Fun Run will be happening virtually! We invite alumni and all community members to participate in our Virtual Fun Run anytime from September 19 to 12 p.m.

Some Engineering students have created a 3:00 – 5:00 minute video vignette sharing their experience on an international exchange. Students will share ‘The global perspective they’ve gained through travel, study, and/or work abroad’ which is the theme of the photo contest as well. Topics covered in the video may include: Where they went, highlights of their experience and what they learned. Videos will be shared through Social Media: Facebook, Twitter, etc. Videos will be shared on September 21, 22 and 24, 2020.
Learning an additional language provides an opportunity to explore the diverse world around you. The Culture and Language Studies department offers a diverse range of language courses. Throughout the week, you’ll hear from our students on how language learning has helped them become active participants in a multilingual world. Check our Instagram @renisoncollege to view videos throughout the week!
As a thank you for all of your hard work as a valued postdoctoral fellow, Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs is pleased to offer you the opportunity to pick up a free gift: a postdoc t-shirt from the Waterloo store. Supplies are limited and must be picked up in-person at the W Store Essentials pick up spot in the Student Life Centre between September 21 and October 2. We will keep some t-shirts aside for those unable to travel to campus during COVID-19 and will allow you to pick them up once the campus is fully operational. Unfortunately, we are unable to ship these items.
Grab some basic watercolor paint supplies, your spouse and kids, and log in for a special virtual postdoc paint nite class, led by local artist Candice Leyland. Learn to paint a starry sky featuring the aurora borealis in watercolour. Great for a variety of skill levels including absolute beginners. You'll need a few supplies (most of which can be gathered from a dollar store or your local art store).
