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 COVID-19 continues to hit our urban areas hardest, what makes our cities attractive also makes them most vulnerable to the virus. Mass transit, the concentration of people and capital, and planned density all aid in the spread of the virus. In a rush to interpret an uncertain future, some theorists have suggested 70-years of rapid global urbanization might be over. But has the death of cities been greatly exaggerated?
Take a Virtual Stroll down Memory Lane. Details to come.
We will send you details in early September about how to attend this event. In the meantime, if you have questions or old photos/memorabilia you would like to share, please contact Alison Enns.

This time of social distancing is necessary but difficult, putting a strain on people whose livelihoods depend on bringing people together. While musicians have been cancelling tours and plans daily, they still want to bring their art to the masses — and hopefully drum up some new fans the process. We're thrilled to use this online opportunity to showcase some amazing Waterloo friends & alumni and bring them direct to your living room.
