This past term, several students had the opportunity to go to New York for a Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) United Nations (UN) Office Seminar. It was a chance to connect with other students, hear guest speakers from all over the world, and tour the UN headquarters. One of the students who went was Joshua Cheon, a second year PACS (Peace and Conflict Studies) major, who came out of the trip reflecting on what he had learned and experienced. 

Welcome to winter term 2023!
There are some exciting opportunities and events to look forward to this term so make sure to stay up to date with this newsletter and on our social media (@pacsuwaterloo).

As we get into the routine of a new semester, if you have any questions about courses or scheduling make sure to reach out to your academic advisor, or check out the supports linked below under Student Support Resources.
