Did you know that:

Waterloo’s first students started classes in the heat of early July in portable classrooms?

Enrolment jumped from just 74 students in 1957 to over 1100 in the 1961-1962 academic year?

Visit Special Collections & Archives’ new exhibit: UW @ 60

Come and see Dr. Hagey’s robes, a school jacket from a 1965 graduate, and an early chemist’s bottle from the School of Pharmacy, as well as many photos taken around the University over the past 60 years!

UW @ 60 will be on display in the Doris Lewis Rare Book Room until September 29, 2017.
