Campaigns, connections, and community: November in review

First and foremost, congratulations to our entire campus on our successful United Way Campaign!

Let me extend a big thank you to all of those who organized and donated to this excellent cause. As I mentioned in my message to campus on Wednesday, we surpassed our fundraising goal of $240,000, which represents about 5% of United Way’s fundraising goal for the entire region of Waterloo.

Celebrating our impact: October in review

In about an hour from now, the first graduands of Fall Convocation 2013 will cross the stage, taking their place in the world as alumni of the University of Waterloo.

Off to the races: September in review

What a start!

Waterloo’s 2013-2014 academic year is up and running with incredible momentum.

End of term, end of summer: August in review

In a few short days, our university will be at its most vital and exciting, as new and returning members of our community join us on campus.

It’s the kind of energy I thrive on, and from chatting with many of you, I know that you feel the same way.

Campus community in full bloom: July in review

There’s only one way I could possibly start July’s update: with a huge thank-you to the team that enabled our biggest, best Canada Day ever.

More than 40,000 of our friends and neighbours came out to the Columbia Lake Fields to celebrate Canada, and to celebrate this wonderful community where we’re so fortunate to live and work.

New alumni take on the world: June in review

I never get tired of Convocation.

Seeing our graduands cross the stage and getting the chance to speak with many of them is a perennial pleasure. It’s incredible what you hear. “I’m starting my own company,” is something our grads tell us more and more frequently. Some are going on to further studies, others have travel lined up, and many are making the transition to the workforce.
