Winterloo: Easing homesickness for students during the holidays

Monday, December 21, 2015

Media are invited to attend Winterloo, a series of events that brings together University of Waterloo students who can’t make it home for the holidays, as well as those who would regularly spend this time in the region.

Winter loo 2014

Winterloo is an annual event open to all Waterloo students. Events take place from December 23 to January 3 and also provide an opportunity for international students to experience elements of Canadian culture unique to this time of year.

The break between fall and winter term is an important time in the student experience. It offers students a time to relax and engage in social activities, and the University of Waterloo is dedicated to ensuring that all students have that opportunity, no matter where they spend the break.

Event: Happy Holidays!
Date and time: Friday, December 25, 2015, 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Location: Student Life Centre
Media are encouraged to attend Happy Holidays on December 25 for visuals of students gathered together, enjoying hot chocolate and treats as they swap stories of how they celebrate the December holidays when at home, playing the ‘gift stealing game’ and taking a walk through Waterloo Park to see the lights.

Event: Holiday Potluck
Date and time: Friday, January 1, 2016, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.  
Location: Student Life Centre
During the Holiday Potluck on January 1, media will have access to visuals of students enjoying a holiday potluck and gingerbread house decorating.
