reunion graphic with 50th anniversary of math

You only get to turn 50 once, and we’re going to celebrate like never before.  Join us for a fun-filled weekend of events - parties, reunions, and lectures - as we celebrate our Faculty and alumni's success, and look forward to Math’s next 50 years!  When else will you get to mingle with 50 years worth of favourite professors, classmates, and friends?

Dance to 50 years worth of hits under the disco ball at "The Pink Tie Party" at Fed Hall on Saturday night, or cheer on the Warriors football team after the President's Reunion luncheon on Saturday afternoon. 

Our "50th Forum" will let you reminisce about your time at UW, as well as enjoy stories about the decades you might have missed.

Looking for a bit more adventure?  Join the Math Amazing Race and decipher math clues that will lead you on a math-oriented campus journey that’s also kid friendly.  Finally, bring some of your favourite math memorabilia to be included as we put together and seal our 50th time capsule.

Get your "pink" on for this one time celebration of Waterloo Mathematics' 50th anniversary!
